Laziness, Cabrio and New Zealand

Sorry for the laziness in respect to blogging, but somehow it didn’t fit in…
Anyway, yesterday was the first CABRIO day, which means my little convertible got his first chance this year, to lower the roof back into the trunk and giving me a fun ride while running my errands. Thank goodness spring has arrived!
Some on the way back down from the Cape Reinga we took a little ferry. 
So here is the Monster while waiting for the ferry

And this is the little ferry:

And this us enjoying the short ride

So then we went down through some of the oldest forest on this beautiful planed. The Kauri is tree which grows very slowly and so it took just about 3,000 years for the Farther of the Forest to grow to this huge and massive tree. 
The girth of this tree is 16.41 meters (about 54 feet), which means you look basically against a wall!

On the other side we got to Opononi. Opononi was made famous in the mid 1950s by the tame dolphin Opo, who used to let children ride on his back. Anyhow the location is fantastic. Big sand dunes, which extent right into the water.

We spend the night at Baylys Beach and it was perfect conditions for making some more beach photos. Sorry for all the beach photos, but New Zealand exists out of two islands and it is really hard not to make any beach photos, but I promise you that the beach photos will get less.

I wish you all a nice Saturday.

From today on you can buy my cards and albums in this very sweet shop in München-Hadern. The good thing is you can drink a coffee or tea while surrounded with beautiful accessories such as quilts, pillows, ceramics or candles (everything for sale) and if you get hungry just stay and eat a little snack.

Go and check it out, it’s worth a trip!!!

Did I post about spring yesterday??? Well, this how it looks just right now from the balcony:

How come everybody really wants snow for Christmas and nobody wants it anymore in March??? I don’t know, but I’m ready for spring, what about you?

Spring has arrived last weekend in my house. The really nice thing about having you birthday in February is that you even more excited about all those flowers you are getting and by the end of the day, spring is every room.

Yep, there are forty Tulips.

I was overwhelmed by all the nice and thoughtful presents.
I can easily say that I have the best friends and family members and I wanted to say
OK I hope that the little sunshine will do the last trick to these
Have a wonderful weekend
