Ezra and I decided to get out of the house to enjoy the gorgeous winter day we’d been blessed with. We made for Petone foreshore, with an awesome playground and excellent driftwood collection on the beach, its somewhere we’ve stopped in quickly before, but never had a proper chance to explore.
While we were stick hunting a lovely lady and her three dogs came wandering down the beach, and her lovely old chocolate lab, Koda, desperately wanted to befriend Ezra. She said that for most of his life he’d been climbed all over and sat on by the children of Eastbourne, so welcomed Ezra on for a ride! E’s face said it all, he was in dog-lovers heaven ❤
After a play and explore, we popped into a Petone cafe for a coffee and juice, where Ezra regaled me (and the rest of the cafe) with his amazing selection of facial expressions. He was in fine form and had me seriously cracking up.
We’ll definitely be heading back to Petone with Martin and the big kids in tow next time – I know we’ve only just scratched the surface of things to be done and adventures to be had in Lower Hutt!
