Afternoon Swim, Stanmore Bay, Whangaparaoa Peninsula

Stanmore Bay is one of my favourite beaches.  Firstly it was the beach that I grew up knowing, then after meeting Craig, it was the beach we would walk and run the dog (dog would run, we would walk!).  It is safe for the kids for swimming, with very few rocky areas so mainly sand that gets taken home in togs, towels and bags.  For anchoring it's not the best as there can be quite a swell that comes from the N making it bit exposed.  For wind it can be exposed from the North East right round to the West, but I have seen boats in there over the summer periods.
When we're all overheating and it's a lovely day.... the only way to fix it is to go to the beach!  We were fortunate to catch up with our friends Jess & Alec Salmond and Jess's friend too, which was awesome for when you need a mermaid tail done!  Thanks guys!
The picture says it all! Kiwi Kids!!!
