It’s been a month since I last posted to the Daily Dose! Maybe I should rename it the Monthly Dose, or the Weekly Dose – what do you think? All I can say is that this summer has been a real busy one for me in many ways, even though I was on holiday for a number of weeks. This past month in particular has been a real whirlwind but now that things are starting to slow down a bit, it must be time for another dose of the salts!  …Have you missed it?

The month of February started with my daughter’s 21st birthday party. A great Kiwi tradition. My daughter – also a keen lover of the beach lifestyle – insisted on hiring a beach bach at the idyllic Mahanga Beach at Mahia for her party. Well, I certainly wasn’t going to complain with that idea ! We had a great time. The weather came right for the big day and the surf came right for the day-after wake up call. Here’s some of the goodness to share with you all.    Ô
