Mount Maunganui Surf and Sunset – Weekly Hump Day Photo

| February 22, 2012 | 15 Comments

Happy Hump Day! What is Hump Day you may ask yourself? Check out this quick description then come right back

Each Wednesday we post up a picture of something that we have found helps us imagine NOT being at work and helps us get to the weekend faster. It could be just a relaxing beach, a surfing location, a great snorkelling spot, a destination, well you get the idea.

Where In The World This Week?

Mount Maunganui Surf and Sunset

This week is a photo from my home town, Mount Maunganui, which is on the East Coast of the North Island in New Zealand.

The last time I was home at the beginning of last year I was hardly out of the water! Some of the best surf in the whole country breaks upon the shoreline here. There is nothing more relaxing or better than sitting on your surfboard watching as the sun rolls across the horizon and sets on another beautiful day.

What memories does this photo evoke to help you get over Hump Day?

    This reminds me of my incredible year in New Zealand, although thankfully I’m not working a standard job so hump day doesn’t really affect me! Great shot 😉

    Jealous as we are experiencing a cold Eastern European winter. Reminds me of the beaches on Long Island New York. Ahh the coast!

  5. Visiting the Mount now! Such a gorgeous place.

    This is one heck of a beautiful photo. Sure makes me wish I was there right now! =)

  8. Love the photo.
    The last city I lived in in NZ was Tauranga and I used to love walking around the base of the Mount (while delighting in one of those ice-creams from that shop just below the Mount across from the hot pools).
