Dear Auckland,

My my, you are pretty.

I must say I was shocked to find out from our Airbnb landlords that the west coast of the north island of New Zealand is not as popular as the east coast. Being a west coast girl myself and growing up in an area known for its beaches, I was really unable to comprehend this.

So obviously we went to the west coast. We zoned in on a black sand beach that was stunning. The sun was a little shy for my beach expectations, but the tide pools, absurd amount of birds, and quicksand warning sign really made up for the lack of sun.

I'm also thrilled that while I might be procrastinating on writing to you, Auckland, it is dragging out the process and is helping keep my memories alive.

xx Katie
