We had bacon, eggs, sausages, beans and toast for breakfast this morning, which was the perfect start to the day.
Shortly after breakfast, we all had showers, washed up and went out.
We began with a trip to Glenfield Mall to visit our favourite coffee shop and grab a coffee and some peppermint slices.
After chilling with our coffee, we walked around the mall and showed Kim’s parents the ‘sights’. We then got back in the car and drove to Takapuna for a beach walk.
We walked down Takapuna beach and then back again, which took some time but the sun was beating down and it was great to be able to experience it and show Kim’s parents some good weather in Auckland!

After Takapuna beach, Kim had the idea to take the walk to Milford beach, which was about a 40 minute walk away, across rocks and sand.
We had fun on this walk and it wasn’t too treacherous.
Once we got to Milford, we walked along the beach there for a bit and then went back up and to the supermarket. At the shop, we got some ice creams and a drink, which we earned from our long walk!
After, we began another long walk back to the car, which was about another 40/45 minutes in the hot sun.
We went from here to Wairau to buy cinema tickets for later on.
We got back home and were all exhausted, but it was great to get outside!
We heated up the Christmas day leftovers and ate those…There was a lot of food left, but we ate it all!
We relaxed for an hour or so and then got back in the car to drive back to Wairau to watch Holmes & Watson.
The cinema was almost empty! We watched the film and it was very silly but also very funny! Curtis gave it a 7.5/10 and Kim gives it 8/10.
We got back home and it was around 23:00! We have all noticed we have been burned by the sun a bit, too, which is bad!
