Its hard to imagine not living by the sea.
For me at least that's the place to go for action, relaxation and getting the old head focused for the next day. These from the sea around Tauranga.
Check out the third one from the bottom. For a minute there I thought here comes the shot of a lifetime! The boat on the left drove right out onto the racing line of "Sleepyhead" the white monster on the right hand side doing 160k/hr or more. Close, very close.
