Around this time last year I was standing in one my of my favorite places. I thought I'd share it with you. It's called The Long Bay Hills, located in beautiful
North Shore City
The UniverseThe beach leads to a path up the cliffs to the hilltop. From there you can see across about five bays on the Hauraki Gulf.
It definitely falls into my pretty things category.
Unfortunately, they've started residential building in the surrounding area. If only there were a modern day Beatrix Potter to buy all the land and save it. For those who may not know, Beatrix Potter used her book royalties to save much of the Lake District in England.
Fortunately, the hills are part of the reserve and so, they will be here for a long time to come.
