Went out lastnite to try and make use of the good moon at the moment, ended up at a small beach just past Whangamata. My luck held for a change and we had a lovely night with no cloud and the bay was nice and sheltered from the strong wind which was blowing. It was such a beautiful night I stayed out taking photos till about 2am.

    Aye, water is as smooth as dude, looks like a great location.

  • Yeah this is a lovely location (another one of those spots that not many people know about) I want to get up there one night when theres a good moon and a good swell running.
