We took our niece to the beach at Kalapaki. It was such a gorgeous day. Not many clouds in the sky and not many people either, it's how I like my beaches.
|Having fun all by himself bodysurfing this wave. Really, he was shouting and laughing like a kid again. I think that's why my niece enjoys him so much. (^-^)|
A week earlier we paddled a 6 man outrigger canoe in this same location. The same place where as a teenager, I used to paddle canoe. With the hui (group) we'd park our canoes on shore and run laps along the stretch of beach. After canoe races we'd surf on bodyboards..and sometimes bodysurf the shorebreak with a 'borrowed' plastic tray from the burger hut nearby. I lost a shark tooth pendant getting tumbled in the water here...for some reason I used to wear one, guess I must've lost it for a reason (^-^)!
p.s., These photos were shot with my iPhone. I'm amazed at how good the photo quality is compared to my previous smartphone. iPhones take nice photos, I'm glad I finally jumped on the bandwagon.
