Pukekohe and Castle Cove

The month of November was spent house sitting in Pukekohe NZ, about 30 minutes south of Auckland. Our host home was a large house sitting on about 5 acres of land. Eight sheep, two chickens, a dog and a cat call this small farm home.

Castle Cove

Castle Cove is a bay on the east coast of the island. About an hour away from Pukekohe.

Crystal clear waters. A bit too cool to swim in.
