Holidays are here at last - Summer 22

13 Jan, 2022

We can’t wait for summer! We’re dreaming of long days spent at beautiful beaches, basking in the summer sun and enjoying a good book.
As an Auckland-based team, the past few months of isolation have us longing to re-connect with friends and family. There’s no better feeling than spending time with loved ones in the sunshine, sharing freshly caught fish, a bottle of something special and lots of laughter.
We all deserve a relaxing end to this year. We asked some of our team members how they’re spending their summer break.
From our home to yours – we hope you have a wonderful summer.

What three things do you love most about summer?

Long warm evenings for entertaining outdoors, beach days followed by impromptu BBQs and wearing breezy summer dresses with bare feet.

What are your summer holiday plans?

Camping at an east coast beach with a group of friends. I’m not much of a camper so I'll be taking all the comforts of home with me – we might need a bigger car….

What’s your favourite summer-time food?

Fresh salads with sun ripened tomatoes and wild peppery rocket from my garden. Enjoyed with a glass or two of my favourite Nelson organic rose!

Having more time to catch up with my large extended family, usually at our place. Spending time on our boat – fishing, diving, sailing, swimming, and eating! Swapping work clothes for shorts, jandals and sunglasses.

We will be pointing our boat north and spending some time cruising the beautiful Northland coast, with friends, family and the dog.
