Friends with bach’s, boats and swimming pools are great friends to have. We have spent a couple of great family breaks at Hahei. We played Jenga at night, beers at lunchtime and had family walks in the afternoon. There’s a great tree swing at the northern end of the beach and I have some great photos of the kids flying on the swing against the brilliant blue sky. Our family have really stupid nicknames for each other and the last time we visited Hahei we walked the length of the beach teasing each other and drawing each others names in the sand. That same holiday we fished off the jetty at Whitianga and watched as Ben proudly caught his first little fish!
