It has been quite hot here. Not as bad as the heat folks in Australia are enduring, but hotter than we’re used to. So we’ve been swimming in the sea every other day and I’m quite enjoying it. This morning I thought it would be nice to go for an early swim at Takapuna beach so that we could take Freud. Dogs are allowed on the beach before 10am.
The beach was a heaving promenade of dogs and their owners. The water was calm and very refreshing. Then afterwards we retreated to the nearby Jam organic cafe which was very dog- and kid-friendly with superb coffee.
