Napenape

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.

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.
