Onaero Fun Times!

I survived my first day of my new job. It was a pretty good first day but I have to admit my brain is a wee bit fried. I guess that always happens when you start a new job though as there are always so many new things to learn.

This is going to be a bit of a picture heavy post, I have to admit, I didn't really realise how busy our Christmas/New Years was until I started  blogging about our holiday break.

The first part of our holiday was spent with my family in Awatuna on the family farm - with an evening spent in Opunake.

The second part of our break was spent with a bunch of friends in Onaero, we stayed at a holiday home called En Gedi River and Beach Retreat, its the second time I have stayed at this place and I don't think it will be the last. Its such a beautiful place to stay and so relaxing.

It was also nice to stay out here, but we were also able to take a few little day trips (I will blog about those soon).

In the meantime here's some photos I took whilst we were staying in Onaero - it was such a blast! We really are so lucky to have such an amazing place to stay with our amazing friends!

Looking forward to your other trips.
Now, this is one thing that is a far cry from Switzerland -- there is no ocean view here!

I love Onaero! My boyfriend's parents live there and his mum and sister both work at the winery/restaurant place. We didn't make it to the Naki over Christmas but I hope we can return asap, your posts are making me miss it.

Oh no, I missed you! Onaero brings back happy childhood memories of whitebaiting with my grandad and swimming across to the muddy side of the river! That holiday home sure has a wonderful view and great company and good food would have topped it off nicely. The kids and I had a fab 3 weeks in New Plymouth catching up with most of the extended family and the weather was a scorcher! Happy times all round!
