Friday night in..still raining and so humid !...I decided to try a new cake recipe by Donna Hay. Its an  Apple & Cinnamon Tea Cake . Very yum and hardly anything left hehe.


Its 12pm and im still in bed ! Its absolutely terrible weather out there ! Windy and rainy...alot of it,  and at least for another 3 days ! Its suppose to be sunny at this time of the year :-(  going to the beach, having picnics, bbqs. day dreaming of Waiheke Island today..l o v e that place..just going thru some photos from earlier this year..

On the ferry over to Waiheke Island which takes 40 min. Auckland City in the background.

 Waiheke have so many stunning sandy beaches

 Our Waiheke bach we stayed at with views to the ocean from the deck

 Inside the bach

 Mudbrick Vineyard  is my absolute favourite place to sit down towards sunset with some wine and nibbles. Absolutely amazing views...and on a clear day you can see Auckland .

 So cosy at night when they lit the fireplace...

Look at the view...ahhhh.....

View from the Mudbrick Restaurant

 With mum, dad and Blake drinking some lovely Rose :)
 Few vinos later...very happy hehe

...with more amazing views...

 Picnic amongs the olive trees and vineyards

 Mudbrick at sunset...if you look closely you can see Auckland city lights in the background.

Beautiful sunsets and perfect views at dinner :)
