Aaaannnddd ..... There's a Moose.

Here's a picture from yesterday when it was calm ... but this morning, during the storm, we dragged logs out of waves to protect this wharf. The ocean was crashing in and we held the wharf together with our hands and feet. It is the heart of bay here on this island.... 💛🌴Hhhmmm, I think I've got a blog post brewing 😆😆

Yes we set off hiking hours before the storm hit. Went off the beaten track and ended up getting very wet .... but it was so worth it! #nz #kawauisland #generationoutdoorexplore #optoutside #hikingwithkids #familytrails #familyadventure

Stunning day on Kawau xx

There's a special bond between cousins - here's a pic of a very happy reunion after not seeing each other for a year and a half! And there were lots of "You have an accent!" "You've grown!" And laughing and smiling and sparkly eyes.

Watching 5 girls catching waves and listening to pat sing and play guitar. Counting my blessings. So many hugs. So much love. Ocean family road trip is back at their favorite ocean 💙💚💛

Have moved back to New Zealand and we need help naming the caravan as we keep calling it "the bus" by accident! I'm thinking a woman's name ... maybe popular in the 70s 🌼Big thanks to Mum @uluwatuster and my super hot sister pictured here @sarahjaneboard for picking us up from the airport in the middle of the night with 10 suitcases 😲and thank you to Lynley and Clive for having us! @ Kawau Island, New Zealand
