Breakfast is always fun when you have guests from several different countries all chatting away together about their different travel experiences. It has been very hot in New Zealand this summer and many of our guests have been making a bee line for the beach. Waihi Beach and Mt Manganui Beach have been both looking glorious in the sun. Greg and I took a trip over to Mt Maunganui yesterday and the seas was the most gorgeous turquoise colour. Many people were busy setting up marquees for this weekends surf carnaval at the bay. We are booked out all weekend as I am sure most places in The Bay are with so many events on.
