The blog hop Come Fly with Me invites you all to visit New Zealand, especially our buddy Sammy from OneSpoiledCat.  Join us to visit one of our favourite places – Waikanae Beach.

Fly with Me to Waikanae Beach!

Waikanae is a small town located north of Paraparaumu on the Kapiti Coast, up the west side of the North Island. It is on the main motorway heading north, not far from Wellington.

Waikanae is noted for its beautiful beach, and the river mouth. The Beach area is nice in summer and there are two cafes. One, The Front Room, is the one you see here.

There is quiet in the courtyard beyond the cafe, and does a simple selection of good food (including bacon) and cocktails. We come up here several times a year in summer and enjoy the sandy beach, then a coffee here.

It is nearly Summer here now, but I know Sammy loves Christmas and his Mum and Dad will treasure this festive season with their lovely ginger boy.

Merry Christmas Sammy from all of us here,

Dusty Cat

    The Dash Kitten Team is most kind to bring dear Sammy to NZ land. He is my mentor, I don’t know what I shall do without his guidance on how to be a house kitty. I try, I do, really…but it is not easy and I miss Sammy terribly. Paw hugs for this trip for Sammy

      Suppose to be an exclamation point at the end of “miss him so much”… don’t know how a question mark got there… early morning typing!

    What a great place to visit with Sammy! He really got around the world yesterday.

    It was a bittersweet day but Sammy got a rousing farewell tour! We’re still trying to visit the participating blogs.

    Oh Dash, what a lovely visit he had to have had. My human brothers were in NZ twice so far for several weeks at a time and they got to see what Sammy saw as he flew over. God bless.

    Summer sounds very good to us. Although we do like Christmas in the cold as well. But it all looks lovely, although how do you pronounce all those difficult names???
