One of the nearest towns to my parents house in Opunake - one evening whilst at Mum and Dad's we all went into town for a spot of dinner at the local pub.
We ended up going to Opunake a bit later in the day so most of the shops in town were closed - but my Mum did stumble across this op shop and my mum asked the lady if she would mind staying open a while later so we could have a look around.
The building that the op shop is located in could do with a little bit of TLC, but I guess the rent must be pretty low for the store owner.
There were a lot of treasures inside for very good prices - much cheaper that stores here in Wellington. I ended up buying a wee make-up compact and a navy blue winter dress (perfect with orange tights!) here's a few photos I took inside the store. I get the feeling that my mum will be coming down to the shop quite a bit.
After a huge pub dinner we headed down to Opunake Beach for a walk - Opunake Beach is pretty well known as a surf beach and its pretty popular in summer. When we arrived there there were loads of people in the camp ground and although it was nearly 7pm the lifeguards were still on duty. Here's a few photos that we took when we went for our beach walk.
A few days later when our friends Nilanka and Paul picked us up from Mum and Dad's and on the way to the beach house we were staying at we stopped off at a lookout above Opunake Beach.
