We had a lovely time away for our 20th anniversary. We went to this lovely motel. Normally when I go and stay at one of these places the pictures in the advert always look better then what they are well in this instance reality was better than the picture. It was a lovely spot overlooking the Hauraki gulf. The room was beautifully presented and very very clean.
It had a lovely little kitchen and bathroom with a spa bath and a separate lounge area. I felt very spoilt.
I took some lovely photos while I was away of quite a few lovely spots. Unfortunately there is some dirt on one of my lenses so some photos have marks on them that I will have to photo shop later. These are a few of the photos that did turn out.
