At the end of a long summer’s day in Auckland, it’s wonderful to go for a walk and enjoy the cooling air. There are many beauty spots to choose from – beaches are ideal. Nowhere is cooler than at the water’s edge and one gets views of boats with billowing sails and islands in the distance. Everyone is out – walking, jogging, cycling, sailing or foraging for pipi. There is plenty to look at and room for all on the wide shore when the tide is out.
