The 5th running of the Brits at the Beach festival was held in Whangamata this past weekend, and after attempting to get along to this event in the past few years, I finally got a chance to check it out.

Yesterday I was sitting outside on the deck having a late lunch, while making the most of the sun that was shining between regular showers of rain. I hadn't planned on going anywhere for the rest of the afternoon, but I just couldn't relax, knowing there was a car show just a few blocks away in Te Rapa...
