With my sister over visiting from Aussie, and Mother Bear up from the Coro this weekend, Mr Oratia and I decided to show the girls a bit of our westie life starting with Oratia Farmers Market, the best place for a saturday morn.
We tasted sausies, pickles, cheese, fudge, breads, hummus the lot - and bought the lot too!
We packed in our treats and headed further west to the wonderful Piha
We picnic'd on the sand and watched the few surfers.
Then to ease our stuffed bellys we took a stroll to Kitekite falls
...and what would a westie adventure be without a cafe stop with a giant Auckland wide view. We finished up at Elevation to indulge in a chai latte on the breezy deck.
