Being a tourist

Nothing quite like having to show overseas guests around your city to get you investigating and researching what there is to see!

Friends have been visiting from the UK. Unfortunately, they've had terrible weather for most of their stay but we took advantage of one slightly better day to head out to west Auckland to the Waitakeres and west coast beaches. Piha is always worth a visit for the amazing black sand and waves (if you happen to be into surfing!) Too dangerous for swimming in my opinion as there are lots of rips. But some hardy souls were in the water on the afternoon we were there:
