Is there anything as relaxing as the sound of waves crashing when it's time to go to sleep?
We recently returned from an Easter break where the house was so close to the beach you could almost hit the water from the deck. We stayed on Great Barrier Island, a beautifully remote and tranquil place sixty odd miles out to sea. It was bliss...
Solar powered with the only water available coming from a rainwater tank in the garden.
The weather was perfect, the family well-behaved and I gobbled up three books, including A Suitable Boy which is as weighty as the Yellow Pages.
I'm feeling revived, renewed and ready for adventure.
