Weather photo of the week: Kapiti, where the sky meets the sea

A stunning spring sunset over Waikanae Beach creates a beautiful backdrop behind Kapiti Island.

We absolutely love living at Waikanae Beach on the Kapiti Coast. We are lucky enough to live just a short, two-minute walk from this beautiful view. 

This photo was taken one evening  in late September, shortly after we'd finished dinner.

As the sun began to set, the sky was looking great and my dog Cruz dragged me down - literally - to the beach for a closer look.
