With fine days we tried to get out and enjoy the last of the summer. This was the summer that was late and carried on into autumn. Worse things happen! A favoured walk was the one around the Mount, aka Mt Maunganui. It is circular, and has views of Tauranga Harbour, Matakana Island, the Pacific Ocean and the beaches at Mt Maunganui. It’s a lovely walk of less than an hour.
Sometimes it seems like half the population is out enjoying it as well – which is great. April 21 is Queen Elizabeth’s real birthday; we honoured the real her with a walk.
