We had a long weekend for Waitangi weekend and we went camping at Waikuku beach for two nights. It was great, awesome weather and Waikuku beach was a perfect location. The camping ground was a bit overcrowded but the beach was wonderful and the kids had a fun time playing with the other families we camped with. We went with Stew and Kathy and Amy and Rob. Between us we had 9 children aged 8, 7, 6, 6, 6, 4, 4, 4, 2 and they all got on very well. Only two girls so Isla and Freya were a bit outnumbered but definitely held their own. On arrival Isla had the 7 year old boy Arthur helping her set up her tent and he was very obligingly following her instructions!
