Langs Beach - I missed you!


This week the other half and I have taken a week off work to complete a tour of Northland, here in NZ which is the upper area of the North Island. I lived up in this region for 20 years but there are places I haven't been and I'm eager to show him some of my favourite places like this lovely spot...Langs Beach is somewhere I use to take my children to when they were growing up.


It's a regular feature to see a tractor towing a boat trailer away from the boat ramp. These gnarled trees line the whole beach as it winds around this part of the coast. They are great to sit or play on.


Such a neat view - the island in the background is called "Hen and Chicks". There is some great fishing in this area.


I have lots more photos to come...

  5. I loved Langs Beach. I'm pretty sure it appeared on my New Zealand blog several times. It's good to see it again.

  6. Oh, I love the gnarled trees! Climbing trees was one of my favourite things when I was a youngster. That's a beautiful coastline you have there.

  7. I love beaches in NZ, unfortunately i've visited or actually been into 3 on the way to the island.

    On your comment about praying mantis in my post: Yes we have lots of them here too, and there are those who are almost permanent residents in an area of the plant. Have you seen my post when it actually ambushed a butterfly i was currently shooting? It is interesting but also a bit scary. I also watched one eating its mate while still attached at the abdomen, a bit yucky!

  8. Lovely scenery. It is no wonder you want to show it off to the other half.

  11. I love the Pohutukawas along the beach. They do make some incredible designs with their branches and trunks.
