Nothing makes me happier than being beside the ocean. I am not fussed about what the weather is doing especially when I go out to Raglan, which is what I did the other day. I enjoy the drive and spending time mooching about on my own, calling in to the shops I love, grabbing a coffee and some lunch to eat at the beach. This time I sat in the car as it was wet and wild. I shared the crusts off my sarnie with the bird life.
Like this one footed seagull that swooped in and hopped about.
The waves were crashing and smashing onto the rocks
sending the spray of ocean into the air
getting me wet more than once,
while the sun tried to break through the stormy sky.
I sat high above Manu Bay watching the rain getting closer and closer.
Because I know you will ask what did I buy, here we go with the show and tell.
Going clockwise: Recycled sari woven into a blanket from Zinnia, Faces from the seconds table at The Monster Company, A good old fashioned kiwi book full of fabulous tips from the shop next to Monster, and three pieces of Pottery from the seconds table at Tony Sly.
And some very naughty Pencils!!
Also bought from Zinnia.
I also ordered and paid for some very nice shoes at Soul
another of my favourite shops.
