Wednesday around the world - Summer at Mangawhai Surf Beach
These days here in Mangawhai we've had the odd sunny day but mostly dreary wind and rain. It's enough to make you go on holiday to Fiji or Rarotonga. Thankfully I have oodles of images from last Summer saved on my phone and laptop. This one above is from one of my long walks on our local surf beach, no more than 5 mins from where we live. A massive log had washed up around by the rocks and I found it too tempting to pass up taking a photo especially on such a calm sunny hot day.
This one is in honour of our country's surf life guards. Right through summer we see them patrolling the beaches around NZ keeping an eye out for swimmers in trouble, sharks and any other disturbances. They are purely volunteers and i'm definitely of the opinion they are worth their weight in gold and being paid for what they do.
