MrW and I had a wonderful time away when we headed up to the far north this past weekend. We left Auckland City on Friday at 4.30pm and arrived at the Resort at 9.30pm, so it was a long trip, but it was worth it to be able to wake up there on Saturday morning. It meant we were able to do some exploring and relaxing before the wedding. We enjoyed a walk along the beach and a coffee by the seaside in the morning, and we also managed to fit in time in the spa with a good book each - pure relaxation! I think best of all though the whole trip gave us time to reconnect which is so very very important. I thought I'd share a few of our 'holiday' snaps :)
|Taipa Bay, the Resort where we stayed at is right by this beach, also the view from the cafe|
|We went for a nice long walk to the end of this stretch|
|This is Rangiputa Beach where the ceremony was held, you can see the gathering of people right down the far end. What a beautiful ceremony it was :)|
We enjoyed a wonderful time, we caught up with some of MrW's old work friends who came as well, lots of laughter and joking around, a fair bit of wine and we danced the night away! Great medicine for the soul :)
On the way home on Sunday we decided to have a quick stop at Mangonui and have a coffee.

I must say even though it was a fantastic time away, I was really ready to head home by the end of it.
Home Sweet Home!
