Summer days at 90 Mile beach


This is one place I want to get back to once Summer comes from December until March. 90 Mile Beach is one of those places that goes on and on stretching from Kaitaia up to Cape Reinga. It's on the west coast of our North Island and is approx 88 miles long.


Its beach and sand dunes are popular with tourists - this area has been the culprit of quite a few shipwrecks in the old days. Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear drove along here in one of their episodes with James May.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

I like the name of the beach and also I love wide sandy beaches like this one.

I was going to drive on this beach once in our AWD Odyssey but hubby didn't think it too good of an idea. I guess our attempted entrance in loose sand had him backing out as quick as he could.

I love to walk on a beach and feel the sand and smell the fresh air and hear the wind and this is a long, long, long way to do it. Are there seashells and rocks to be had? I like to collect those too. Ahhh, the images you have created in my mind while looking at your photograph. Nice job!

That's a great long beach! Its funny to me when people talk about or show people driving on the beach because it isn't allowed here in Oregon. We've been in many States where it is though -- even drove our camper on one in Texas -- but it still surprises me a little.
