It's the weekend!

Pretty pink blooms for the weekend

Blue skies, sparkly sea and hot summer days are here, brings everyone over to the little Island. 
Oneroa Bay is a popular spot for boaties to enjoy

What we have found that after Conde Nast Traveller, placed Waiheke the fourth best Island in the world it has become a popular holiday destination. The ferries have become so busy and what is normally a peaceful little place has changed remarkably. 
Little Oneroa beach

    Love that covered dish luncheon concept of each bringing a course. That works out very well. In Europe it is not common but here in the USA we do that a lot.
