Evening at Leisure Island

Weekend off plus sunshine, excellent! We haven't done all that much this weekend. I've been working a fair bit lately, with plenty of early morning starts; so I didn't find much motivation to get up early and go for a road trip! Maybe next weekend, since I have that off as well. 

We did visit the animal park up at McLaren Falls. It's nice up around that area on a sunny day. We timed our visit well, and essentially walked around with a birthday party group (ten kids over excited at every animal, squealing and yelling at each other about what they could see). Still, nice to see the animals and pet them.

The evening was a bit more relaxing, with a quiet walk along the beach at Mount Maunganui, and out to Leisure Island. The photos below are from there.
