Today was Christmas Day. We didn’t have anyone to spend the day with, so we decided to go to a beach we hadn’t been to before. Napenape (pronounced nappy-nap) is just south of the Hurunui River. It is a beautiful beach! It always amazes us how different each beach is from all others. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time there and relaxing this afternoon.
Looking down the hill, across the Hurunui River towards Cheviot (on the other side of the hills)
Hills on the way to the sea
The beach road at Napenape
We had a picnic for lunch
The boys found this baby shag
On the way to the end of the beach, the boys climbed this little hill. The day was quite misty at first.
This cliff marked the end of the beach we could walk today! The tide was near high.
Baby loved the rocky beach!
About to grab the camera (and taste it!)
Gayle and some of the boys climbed the cliff
We played tic-tac-toe
The mist cleared shortly before we left
On the way out, we stopped so the boys could investigate a spring
They said the spring water tasted good.
