The greenest greens, the bluest blues.
Rivers meet the sea. Farmland till your eyes can see.
Waves hit the rocks, surfers hit the waves.
Tides come, tides go.
Boats set sail. Shells line up. Stars shine bright.
And the sun paints the sky with the colours of the rainbow.
Whangarei. Your fresh air makes our skin glow. :)
This is basically it when I want to sum up the last few days spent in Whangarei. Found the perfect spot to relax and soak up with energy and the breathtaking surroundings. Just the regular stuff. Watch some surfers, pick shells, go fishing and eat fresh fish, enjoy the smells of the farm and the belly warming feeling of the electric fence while checking out some cows... ;)
The Mount. Located somewhere in paradise, at the very end of the road leading through a narrow peninsula. In the heart of the Bay of Plenty. Majestically dominating the land. Captivating, iconic, round. One of its kind.
Once you make it to the top, what you see will definitely blow your mind. Spectacular. Incomparable. Pristine.
I'm not kidding, seriously, this is the view from the top. Been there, climbed it, saw it. Magical.

"Nothing happens ahead of its time."
And nature keeps inspiring. And what needs to happen always happens.
Just like this sunset. With the huge rock appearing in the tiny shell.
***Got inspired? Me too ;)
"Aurora Musis amica."
Dawn is friend of the muses.
I woke up very early today. Everything was so quiet. Still dark. For some time, I didn't know what to do, I'm absolutely not used to waking up at this time. But then I looked out of the window.
The moment of sunrise...
And a sudden adrenaline rush. Excitement. A quick and spontaneous decision.
I headed to the beach. I wanted to be there. To see this!
Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved spending time on the beach. Walking barefoot in the sand, toes splashing in the water. Sun caressing my face. Wind playing with my hair. The salty smell of the ocean in my nose. The chirping of the seagulls. Listening to the little stones, sea shells dancing in the water. Riding with the waves. And then washed ashore. Taking a sunbath...
This time I invite you, dear reader, to come along for a little virtual tour to the Northern part of the South Island, the breathtaking Tasman Bay area. We will visit the surroundings of Motueka and Kaiteriteri. Excited? Me so much! :)
Where green mountains and turquoise green-blue sea meet in such a sweet embrace. Where colours of the nature are so vivid and energising, yet everything so peaceful and calming. Where the golden sandy beaches reflect the warm glimmering sunshine. Where playful waves wash the shores and happy seashells, long and round alike, travel along the tide. Where puffy white clouds paint the sky pink with the setting sun. Where your body and soul refreshen with the warmth and positive energies of our Earth.
Oh, I sometimes wish I was a poet. There are simply no words to describe the beauty one can experience in this part of the world… Let the pictures speak to you. Nature at its best! :)

I have to admit that I am an absolute beach lover. There is nothing compared to this feeling of joy I feel when I walk on a beach. Watching the rippling waves wash the shore. Their white edges curl and smoothen by the time they reach the shallow bays. Watch the horizon where the clear blue sky meets the wild water - often in mist. Find the reflection of the puffy clouds under me. Hunt for treasures and maze at the shape and colour of each shell. Pick them up, read their story.
