Who did it better? Morning off in the winery so Rita and I decided to go fishing. We managed to catch this Kingfish off Ponui Island (at the eastern end of Waiheke) on a piper livebait in 7m of water. No match for King Slayer (name of the rod I caught it on and yes I name my rods). #fishing #fish #kingfish #livebait #penn #pennsquall #hook #line #nzv19 #haurakigulf #ponuiisland #waiheke #waihekeisland #tinbum #sashimifordays
Got to see my man's favorite place in the world last weekend. Harry and I camped there overnight with his family, and the next morning, we got to explore the island on BIKES!!!!! Mate... First time I'd even ridden a bike since I sold ma wee GN, and guess what bike they offered I could ride?... A farm modified Suzuki GN 😂👏🙌 it was so nice. So so sooo nice being back on the old beauty. 10 minutes in and it felt like the bike was a piece of me again. . . . #iwantanewbike #suzuki #gn #ponui #ponuiisland #newzealand #motorbike #thefarmonehadsomuchmoretorquethough #countryside #gills #camping #outdoors #nature #weekendgetaway #weekend #sunset #sun #wilddonkeys #theywerereallyfriendly #curiouscreatures #damascusdonkeys #mushrooms

The Summer Day - by Mary Oliver . . Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? This grasshopper, I mean-- the one who has flung herself out of the grass, the one who is eating sugar out of my hand, who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down -- who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes. Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face. Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away. I don't know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon? . Tell me, what is it you plan to do With your one wild and precious life? . . . #noteddetails #thesummerday #maryoliver #newzealandsummer #ponuiisland #poetry #rest
Barge jumping - definitely a favourite 😍 #ponuiisland

In January of 2014, I got on a barge and took the kids to a private island to help out with a high school summer camp. It was (by far) the hardest thing I had done on my own with them. . . Jonah was one, Jude was two, Maggie was seven and Max was eight. We took a babysitter and slept on a school bus with an ocean view. It was a lot of HARD work, but some of my favorite New Zealand memories are from that week on Ponui Island. We are going back in little over week. . . People frequently ask me how I do these kinds of things with kids. I will flesh it out a bit more in the story section on instagram - but here is the short answer: . . 1. It’s what I love to do. We can all do hard things, if it’s worth our time/energy/effort. I feel alive and happy when I am having adventures with my family. . . 2. I have exceptionally high standards for my kids when set off on an “adventure”. They know, that if they want to keep doing cool things, they need to pay attention and help out. I talk about my “expectations” ad nauseum. . . 3. When I making my packing list for any given situation - I ask myself two questions. What are the things that frequently go wrong? What are the things that must go well? (More specifics coming up in the adventure section of my Insta stories). . . What are the things that help you when you travel with kids. . . #noteddetails #ponuiisland #camp #summercamp #dohardthings #adventure #dowhatyoulove #adventurewithkids #adventurekids #packing #expectations

Good morning from New Zealand . These bronze deck fittings were originally made by a man called Percy cross .. I met him when I was very young and he lived in the same street where I bought my first house . He was a pattern maker and his basement was full of the patterns for the things people use every day . 🇳🇿 #boatdogs #newzealand #dew #calm #sunrise #onaboat #newday #maltesecross #knight #ponuiisland #percycross #fosterspars #bronze
Heading into clean up beach number #8 .. happy to report that quantity of plastic and micro plastics is quite low for this time of the year .. about 10kg in the last 4 days ... compared to 10kg per beach #beachclean #noplastic #ponuiisland #cavoodle #mondayafternoon #dinghyrides #bowman #dutch
House prices have hit record highs in New Zealand and this is reflected in the lack of people with any time to go boating ... banks making record profits from your time 🤷‍♂️... #worklifebalance #boatdogs #onaboat #kayaking #ponuiisland #noboats #nopeople #rotoroaisland #time #beingsoldagreatbiglie
