Nothing like a walk on the beach to blow out the cobwebs. The thing that I love about the beaches on the West Coast – each one is so different and our latest walk was no exception.
Heading slightly north from home to park up at the “17 mile” on the Great Coast Road.
Beautiful day with clearings skies but with some sea mist to the south adding to the atmosphere.
The boys are happy – this is a gorgeous sandy beach, in fact Stephen and I say to each other “where have all the pebbles gone!” – oh I know, they’re on our beach lol
It is still quite bouldery (is that a word? – is now) on the shoreline and pockets of washed up driftwood but the beach itself is sand, sand, sand.
We’re just walking – as far as we can before we decide to turn around again. Such a gorgeous afternoon why not eh!
There is the occasional little creek crossing to negotiate but Ziggy is more interested in doing a spot of fishing when he can – one day, just maybe one day, he’ll bring us home our dinner…….
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. Together with their faithful friends Nico and Ziggy, their two dogs, they enjoy getting out and about and exploring the West Coast.
