Here's some pictures of us walking at Woodhill Forest (for those in Auckland that haven't taken your pooch there, you should!) We drove down the dirt road that runs parallel to Murawai beach and from there theres heaps of options for different tracks to follow.
I don't know how busy it would be in the weekends but we've been three times during the week and although the car park has had plenty of cars we never saw a single other person or dog (just some rabbits that made for awesome chasing)
And its perfect on the hot days we've been having as theres a great stream that you can follow for 20ish minutes on the way back to the carpark, looks of deepish bits for swimming in too.
There's an agility and obedience ribbon trial this weekend - we'll be going out to do the elementary obedience class and maybe spec. beginners, unfortunately Pepper is 2 weeks off being allowed to compete in agility so we miss out on that which is annoying, because she's been totally awesome in training, hasn't put a foot wrong really and she'd certainly be able to do elementary and starters without to much trouble. But oh well, plenty of time up our sleeves over the next few years for competing - I'm just itching to get started! So we'll be Helen and Snoopys cheer squad and paparazzi!
