This past weekend, after several days stuffed with work, I was able to unwind with a couple of buddies at the beach. Friday we went to Long Beach, and Saturday we went to Doctor’s Point Beach. Although we got lost on our way to Long Beach, we got in some rock climbing. On Doctor’s point we found a giant rock on the beach. No one should ever underestimate how cool it is to chill on a rock on a beautiful beach. Beachs in New Zealand defy any previous notions you’ve ever had about the beach. No lifeguards, no beach blankets and umbrellas crowding the beach, no pollution.
