On my Thursday morning walk along the waterfront, I spotted one of the first Pohutukawa trees to flower.
This Kiwi “Christmas tree” is loved for its crimson flower that only appears during the summer months. For me, the first flowers mark the beginning of the festive season and as I have about 3 parties in the next week it seems mother nature is right on time.
There was a smidge of blue sky peeking from behind the clouds so, Alex and I headed to my favourite North Shore Beach, Castor Bay. Though we weren’t as brave as these kids who were in the water, boogie boards and all, we had a great time sitting on our towels, listening to the waves. Kids really don’t care when it comes to getting in the water do they? Rain, hail, shine or even slightly cloudy it seems. ☺
6.5km Map My Run today. The gorgeous weather meant Wynyard Quarter was the busiest I’ve seen it in quite a while. There were even boats sailing happily on the harbour. Great day for it.
With Alex, Mike and Naomi at Turoa. Hottest trends on the mountain this year are either a helmet with a camera attached to record your run or a beanie with a pom-pom. There are waaay more pom-poms this year than last.
Sunny. Fresh snow. Barely anyone else on the mountain. What more can you ask for?
I just got back from a few days away at the snow. I had a great time but found it a bit hard to post while I was away so I’ll upload a few pics now. Got an afternoon of skiing in on the first day. Unfortunately rain the night before washed a lot of snow away. As you can see from the pic it’s a bit patchy. But, I had a blast anyway. So much fun you don’t even realise you’re exercising.
Tuesday morning “Map My Run” along the water. Happy that my split times are improving. 🙂
Can you believe this is winter? Map My Run on Tuesday at lunchtime.
Sunday morning jog. Oneroa Beach, Waiheke Island. #relaxing
