Pics from the weekend.

No food today just a couple of pictures from our Easter weekend trip to see Julia's parents in Coromandel. The pigeons love the cabbage tree fruit.

The New Zealand native pigeon/kereru




Whangapoua beach is just across the Coromandel peninsula from Coromandel township which is about two hours drive north from Hamilton. Julia's parents used to live there in the house/bach that her father built about 35 years ago, she has been going there since she was born. I first went there when I was 15 and fell in love with the place. Julia's parents sold their house a few years ago and moved to Coromandel township but we go to the beach for a swim at least once every time we visit. We spent many of our summers as teenagers on this beach, it holds great memories.

This is my first attempt at a panoramic edit using photoshop.

I Love the photos!!! Reminds me of our house in Whakatane where a tui would sit in the cabbage tree in the backyard.

really cool photos the one of the beach isn't to shabby for your first time either, photoshop is a blessing but also can be a right pain in the arse.
