So… this year I had a significant birthday. Despite living on the beautiful island that is Waiheke, I had never been on a ‘tropical island holiday’ so to celebrate
(and to avoid having to throw a 40th birthday party), Lance and I decided we would take the kids to the Edgewater Resort in Rarotonga!
We managed to organise the whole thing without letting our darlings know that anything was up, and broke the news to them on the morning on my birthday… the same day we flew out! I’m pretty sure they could hear my daughter’s excited scream all the way down the mainstreet on Oneroa!
It was a really lovely time and so special to be able to step out of the daily grind for a few days. The weather was a bit dodgey when we first got there but got progressively better each day until we left. We snorkeled a little (the water was not overly ‘tropical’), read, walked along the beach, drank the occasional cocktail and sat around on loungers doing not much… H+A+P+P+Y!!
Here’s a few pics from the trip.
And my favourite shot from the trip… you’ve just got to wonder what that little fishy was thinking!! x
