Ramblings about life . . .

What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, even with tough times.

Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.

It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.

Be the dream.

We honour the light and the life within you.

Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Kawhia, Aotea and hot water beach

We visited Kawhia and Aotea - known as the "land that time forgot".

According to the Hamilton & Waikato website:

"One of the Hamilton & Waikato’s, and indeed New Zealand’s, best kept secrets is Kawhia Hot Water Beach. Head down to Ocean Beach in Kawhia at low tide, clamber over the sand dunes and stroll down onto the beach. Find your spot and start digging for an instant natural hot water spa, with stunning views to match."

The little town is really cute with oyster beds visible from the road.

We left the town and drove to the very remote bay and beach which are stunning - once you make it over the very high sand dune. According to the Kawhia Habour website, in order to take advantage of the hot water bubbling up through the sand when the tide recedes, it is best to do so approximately 2 hours before low tide. So before that you may not see any evidence of the hotpools.

The sand is both black and dark blue.

The day we visited, it was dark with cloud cover and raining. As we were walking we could see steam, but could not pinpoint exactly where it was coming from.

Later after a bite to eat, we drove to Aotea which had the most stunning views out over the bay.
