Wine and Cheese night at the beach

I have been watching the young folk out on the harbour in their small sail boats with their pretty colourful sails roaring around having loads of fun. I have often wished to be closer to watch them better. Even though we live quite close to the beach,  the boats look very small and in the distance.

 Last time I took a lady on a wine tour she bought me a lovely delicious cheese Platter from Patakas fine foods'. This was as my tip for taking her out for the day, in New Zealand we really don't tip very much, so something like this is very acceptable and a great treat. On the Platter there was two different cheeses 3 different chutneys and lots of salami with 2 different types of biscuits.

We have been waiting for a perfect evening to go down to Shelly Beach with my Cheese platter and a good bottle of wine to sit in the evening warm sun and watch the sailing while drinking and eating.

 Watching those colourful sails dashing around as the Interislander Ferry came in was rather nice and exciting, I wandered down the beach to observe.. Erle tried throwing a line out in the hope of catching a fish, but no such luck.

 A small Sparrow joined us at the table hoping to be able to share our biscuits and cheese, but I was enjoying it all too much to share with a bird, I was just wanting to share the treat with my Husband.
Nice evening, I really enjoyed  myself, we should do this kind of thing more often. Being a tourist in your own town.
