The sandfly's are out with their families in the dunes 1st thing in the morning, it makes you want to put your boots on and hide. They are vicious. Boots time in the morning is not something I look forward to, the feet are taking a worse for wear look at the moment. Amazed at how tough they are though. Walking into high tide meant running from the income waves at times, and way too much singing much to Bella's dismay. We came off the beach and met Shawn who was kind enough to give us a ride to Matakana. Bruno it was great to make your acquaintence today, love that you are bursting with so much character and thanks for sharing your pinecone.
