Sunday stroll around Hatea Loop
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon...strolling around the Hatea Loop with my family. This is actually the first time we have walked the track...I'm thinking it might become a regular thing for me and Master M during the week.
|Testing out my brand new walking shoes (only $10 - What a bargain!)|
|Great way to start our stroll...|
|First time we have seen Te Matau ā Pohe go up like this. Pretty cool!|
|Checking out the boat that just went under the bridge|
|And she's off!|
|These signs are all throughout the track, in all different colours!|
|A great place to stop and admire the entrance to our marina|
|The Canopy Bridge|

|Quick stop at The Fudge Shop in the Town Basin for an ice cream|
Favourite flavour: Goody Gum Drop
|Bit of History|
|Miss B having a quick rest|
|Amazing - Waka (canoe) & Wave Sculptures|
|Stopping for a quick selfie with Miss B|
|Master M having a good nap in the stroller|
|I want one of these seats! The back reclines either way! From this...|
|Something different, yet very effective|
|Te Matau ā Pohe - an Award winning construction|
|Te Matau ā Pohe - The Hook of Pohe|
|Selfie with Bryce (my partner)|

So there you have it...that was our Sunday stroll around Hatea Loop. I don't know why it's taken us (me) this long to actually do it. I absolutely loved it! It is such a great walk - completed in just under an hour. Already planning to go again this week with a friend and her baby.
If you ever visit New Zealand, come to Whangarei and check out the Hatea Loop for yourself.
