Te Henga, and Sugar-craft Owl







I posted about Te Henga (Bethells Beach) before (here), this is one of the best West Coast beaches... of course not a swimming beach for me: just look at the sign!!! But it is a magical place, especially for surfers. The sand is black and you need to walk quite a bit to reach the beach... so make sure that you wear some foot wear, like Flip-flops, (thong sandals, flip flops, zories, slip slaps, thongs, pluggers, toesies, jandals) or you will burn your feet!






The view is amazing, magical and surreal. And almost empty...





The waves are strong, swim between the flags (not that I would, but my husband and the kids do go in, they are stronger swimmers than me, even the my 10 years old boy!).





Volunteer life-guards keep the watch





We took our German wwoofer here, overseas visitors are always amazed at the scenery here.





No recipes today, but I would like to show you my marzipan owl. I made it with ready made marzipan and used sugar sprinkle leaves for the feet, sugar cachous for the eyes, and candied fruit for the beak. I hope that you like it :-)

  12. That sounds like a fantastic spot for a family outing. The sky is a glorious blue. You asked about white grapefruit - it will be only slightly tarter than the pink, so it will work nearly as well. have a great day. Blessings...Mary
