weekend roadtrip

last week pedey got his hands on a 2011 sti to review for the magazine, and yesterday we decided to take it up north for a little test drive. good fun...

on the way we spotted an abandoned block of factories in helensville, which made for an awesome location for a quick photoshoot. it was pretty eerie, the place was huge and glass was still strewn everywhere - but it looked wicked in the shots...

i couldn't quite decide whether i was fond of the subaru's new shape, it seemed like the boot was perhaps too small compared to the rest of the body of the car? despite the new design (still 10x cooler than my car haha) the car handled incredibly well on the road and it was smooth sailing on to whangarei.

my parents own a beautiful property in the whangarei heads, overlooking the whangarei harbour and mount mania. it was bizarre waking up this morning to this sight, i actually couldn't remember the last time i'd seen a full blue sky due to the seemingly never-ending rain and cloud cover in auckland over the last few months.

today we made the most of the sun and it was so amazing being able to walk around in a singlet all day and not get goosebumps. we also made an effort to hang out with all of mums 'pets' - check out the baby ducklings, so cute! we also had to say goodbye to the donkeys who were going to new home today :(
