Beaches for my California girl

Quite a few of the days Cate was here were rainy, but the last one wasn’t. Her plane didn’t leave until almost six, so we had time to take a picnic lunch to some of our favorite beaches along Whangarei Heads. They’re far enough off the beaten path that we saw very few other people except surfers at Ocean Beach (was that the first beach they bothered to name?):

We hiked to Smugglers’ Bay, where we ate our lunch

and on the way back got this view of  Urquharts Bay (and however you pronounce it, that’s a weird spelling).
