Not to be picky, but your pictures of The Bay Of Islands are a little off. So far so that I’m almost guessing there’s some in-joke going on there :)

The Cathedral Cove picture sure is making me home sick though. An absolutely amazing spot, well worth the trek through the bush to get to it. Useless trivia: it was used as a Narnia location in the recent movie.

My personal pick for New Zealand romantic spots: Opoutere Beach in The Coromandel. A beautiful, long, deserted, white sand, “clothes optional” surf beach. It takes a bit of a walk through the bush to get to it, but it’s well worth the reward.

Anywhere would be nice if only I had a gorgeously handsome, financially secure, respectful guy with no hang-ups who could take me away from this constant work, work, work for a luxuriously romantic, being waited on hand and foot holiday that I so desperately deserve !!! Hmmm, I guess I shall just have to carry on dreaming…………….
