The beach

Yesterday we went to the beach it ended up taking us a little longer to get there than we originally thought, but we saw some of the beautiful countryside on the drive. Yesterday it was cloudy when we got to the beach, but since we got here everyday has been both cloudy and sunny and the weather changes quickly.

People had 4-wheelers and such to ride all the dunes.

Here is the Pacific!! I am not sure how these people are in the water because it was really cold.

This is the lifeguard stand.

There wasn't a parking lot you can drive on the entire beach.

These are all pictures of the country-side. These are the ranges that are near palmy. Hopefully you can see them I took these pictures while Zac was driving. He is getting extremely good at drive on the other side of the road - I still have not driven yet!


  1. Hi Cassie,
    I'm one of Kristin's friends and I feel like I know you, even though I've only met you maybe once. :) But I'm very impressed with your bravery in moving to NZ and I'm glad you have a blog to document all your adventures.

    I recently moved to New Mexico and while it's not on another continent, it's a long way from anything familiar and everybody I know. I've been here almost six months and I'm still adjusting to this odd New Mexican way of life.

    Anyway, I'll look forward to blog-stalking you. :)

  2. That's Holly who commented, Cassie, since she didn't leave her name! :)

    I love seeing these pictures of the beach and countryside.

  3. looks like a great time. Tell me more about where you live and send me your address. Love dad

  4. Cassie, although I hear NZ & Oregon are similar (freezing cold pacific ocean beaches that never have sun, but are always windy so great for surfing in wetsuits) but the mountains there are supposed to be unreal! Did you enjoy the Lord of the Rings movies? They were taped there...I hear there are tours around some of the amazing sites that are seen in the movies. Thanks for distracting me from pharmacology studying! :)

  5. No I haven't seen the lord of the rings, however when venture to the south island I want to go to some of the locations!!
