Ohope Beach

After Waikanae mum and dad hired a campervan and met us at Ohope Beach Top Ten.  We had a very sunny 8 nights there, with just about 20 drops of rain during that whole time!  White Island was a little more active during our stay, but no eruption...unfortunately! We spent most of the time in the pool, even the beach was ignored for the slides at the pool, ice creams from the dairy and chips from the snack bar!  The girls were in the pool about 3 times a day, having discovered bikinis this year at the opshop! (second hand clothing stores).
Josh had some good fishing, bring back 5 fish in total (not very big though!) and a couple of days in the pool made sure his shoulders were well and truly brown!  lots of feet up, reading and playing UNO!  India was the Uno Queen all week!  We had one big day out - to Hobbiton (separate blog post).  We also discovered an amazing pizza place in Ohope township, run by a french gentleman and his lovely wife, well worth a visit if you are in the area!
