We just got home this week from a holiday in Tairua in the Coromandel. The weather wasn’t the best, but we made the best of what we had. We had a well stocked fridge and BBQs just about every day. Heaven is day after day of epic feasts with friends.
We are back to work next week, so being the last weekday of the holidays, we decided to head to the beach one more time.
Today we went out to Goat Island which is just over an hour north of Auckland and worked up an appetite by swimming and snorkeling at the marine reserve. Sometimes, the best picnics are the ones where not a single thing is prepared at home, but instead, collected from your local supermarket, assembled and enjoyed somewhere beautiful with friends. A hot roast free range chicken, cheesy buns, fancy bread, salads, chips, crackers, cheese, stick shaped vegetables and loads of dips. Dig in.
I love a picnic at the beach! I did mine in the National Park for my birthday 🙂 It’s quite humbling to sit in the middle of no where and have a meal.
There are some downsides to eating in the wild (sand, wind and seagulls to name a few), but it’s still a lot of fun.
