Whisked Away to Whiritoa

Great thing happened! Builder Boy organised an amazing weekend away for us, minus the Fun Ones.

Whiritoa (on the Coromandel) was the destination and what a winner! White sand, cliffs, surf, quiet, and warm weather. It was soul filling.

Admittantly, if someone had told me that I would have had to have waited 8 years for this… I may have had a panic attack.

We wished and dreamed about being able to live or holiday there. While something miraculous would have to happen, it’s a great something to aspire to.

Builder Boy and I met when I was 19. He didn’t much like my bikini at the time and found it a great excuse to buy me a new one. My Dad said “he might as well have bought you lingerie” – Poor Dad was losing his little girl, it would seem.

As Builder Boy didn’t give me too many details about where we were going, I didn’t pack my swimming attire. Great chance to get new one and repeat history some 17 years later. The new one was even the same label as the first one he purchased all that long ago. Such great memories!

We had a blissful time and the bach he booked, was perfect.

Living life a little is good for the beaten spirit. What fills your soul?
