North Shore Christmas - in Pictures!


Our little shack on the beach!


Decorating the shack! Inside was a platform which fits two sleep mats and a good space in the middle which we used for playing games, eating (when it rained!) and a few presents we each brought with us.

Some nighttime scrabble!

Christmas day! A walk in the beach with some other friends who were at the same campsite.

The weather was a little on off, so we drove down to Pipeline to watch the waves. These are 25-30ft.

Watching the Pipeline with a picnic.

The weather cleared up and we went for a swim in the afternoon, followed by a few G&Ts and then a full Christmas dinner cooked on the BBQ! Roast potatoes, parsnips, sweet potato, courgettes, peppers. The only slightly different thing for me was no turkey, we had Tofurkey (Laura is a veggie), but it was pretty good when covered in Bisto gravy!

Boxing day sunrise.

Looking back towards our cabin. We literally were, right on the beach!

On the way home we stopped by Haleiwa and looked for turtles.

And there were a few surfers out enjoying the waves...
