Summer is here, sort of, and it's great to see the beach photos readers have sent in.

Peter O'Carroll sent in a great shot of a friend's son at Cathedral Cove in the Coromandel.

Although it looks as if the boy is chasing seagulls, Peter says the child had no idea the birds were nearby, and neither did he until reviewing the photo the next day.

Anna Wilton has an eye for a good scene. In one photo she shows seagulls taking advantage of a resful spot near Parade Cafe on Oriental and in another a pair of plastic spades denoting playtime at Waikanae Beach.

Meanwhile, Eva Kaprinay captured Island Bay on a glorious blue-sky day.

And Catherine Bailey took a wonderful photo of Joel, 8, with "seaweed fingers".

From the UK, Joel, 8, and his brother Elliott , 5, are holidaying in New Zealand.

Catherine's mother sent the photo in. She said Joel was fascinated by the seaweed on the beach and it kept him amused for quite some time!
