Before Covid kicked off, we went up north for a family holiday. While we were based in Paihia, we stopped at Waipu on our way home. It is where my grandmother came from, and there’s quite a bit of Mackay family history in the local museum. It’s a beautiful spot, as is the nearby beach of Ruakaka. We went there for a wedding some years ago and have always intended to return.
I found this article on my newsfeed this morning and thought it would be nice to share a little more of our beautiful New Zealand countryside with you. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/go-nz-what-to-do-in-bream-bay-northland-in-winter/LESQYGYFPOC5WLUSH6DZBGUB2M/
