Yesterday we went to Birdlings Flat, a pebbly beach about 30 minutes south of our house, with 3 other “Mums with kiddies.” Two are British moms and two of us are American, and we’ve all been in NZ less than a year. The beach was shrouded in chilly mist when we arrived, but the stones were still somehow getting some sun warmth so we warmed our buns on them until the breeze shifted the fog away. It was nice to chat, compare notes, and watch our kids squabble over rocks….as if there aren’t enough rocks on the beach!
Poke, poke, poke, driftwood is fun! Everyone came home with two eyes, amazingly enough.
Milo likes to throw rocks, of course, but at the beach he things they all need to get thrown into the waves because we did that one day months ago with Daddy. Mama got her exercise, up and down the beach!
