Opunake Beach 18/12/15

Today just before tea Grandad, Georgie (My sister) and Caro (Me) went down Opunakes main beach.  Opunake is located in South Tāranaki, New Zealand (Aoteroa). First we went to the playground and went on the swings, slides and monkey bars. Then Georgie and I did some beach sprints because we do "Surf Life Saving". It's where you do Beach sprints, Beach Flags, Knee Boards, Body Surfing and of course swimming in the sea. Most of the times I won but sometimes my younger sister won . Guess what tommorow we have a carnival for surf life saving tomorrow in New Plymouth. Then Georgie built a sand castle and Grandada took a few pics of me doing some hand stands in different poses and while we were doing that they took the "IRB boat sort of thing and they are orange and green". Then Georgie wanted to go back to the playground so I waited in the car then we went back to Nanna and Grandadas house where mum and dad and my other sister was with the fish and chips for tea.


  1. Caro
    Fantastic image and what a great idea to write about a local place and something that a few people will know about. Isn't it knee boarding? I really like the photo that's gone with this post and maybe you could have added a location pin from the map part of the posting. Have a great Christmas and fantastic to see you working in your own time.

  2. Hi Caro! It looks and sounds like you have a wonderful day! I loved hearing about all thr activities you did at the beach. I don't know anything about surf life saving. I am impressed that you are learning about it. Here in Canada is is snowy and not too cold - only about -10°C today. We are going to have a white Christmas and maybe some snowmen. Our little lake is frozen over, so we go walking with the dog out on the ice. Have a great Christmas and thanks for the great post.

  3. Hello Caro! The beach sounds like so much fun! I really liked this post, and I especially enjoyed the part about "surf life saving." I had never heard of that before, but it seems like fun! It sounds like you had a really great day, and I liked getting to hear about it. P.S. You are so flexible! Wow!
