Oct 18-Exploring Takapuna and looking for special shells

Okay so one may think, even with thousands of miles of beaches you have to eventually get tired of them.
When I do, I'll let you know LOL With every new beach, there is a new discovery.
I have found, at the other end of Takapuna, ocean worn paua shells that are just beautiful.
 How could anyone grow tired of this.
It isn't every day, living in Up state NY that one gets to see a Sleeping volcano.

Or beautiful natural water features.
On the way to Takapuna we stopped at some car boot sales and picked up some fresh tomato's and apples.
Along with some toys to take apart for projects.
We were going to stop at the  Vietnamese place for some dinner, or was it tea time...what ever, we decided to go home for some take- away..Chicken and Falafel which was fabulous.
It was a beautiful day and I am replenishing my Vitamin D  supply for sure. The sun finally came out..Woohoo. Tomorrow we leave early in the morning for the Kauri Forest to see the biggest Kauri tree in the world. While it is nothing like our Giant Red woods, it does have an interesting story. So stay tuned...oh I almost forgot...the prize find of the day..
Nothing like our Star fish, a bit bigger then a U.S. Silver dollar it is a beauty.
