Beachhaven situated on a peninsula at the end of the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland. I have lived in this suburb for eleven years. Our local harbour beach has some lovely sunsets, I have spent many summer evenings here with friends for a barbeque and drinks.
In the summer there is yacht races every Wednesday evening and Sunday mornings.
This play boat named ‘Children of Beachhaven’ was restored in 1970 by a man named Frank Larkin. He transported metres of sand from across the harbour in his boat. Moored with a rope and tied to a tree on the beach, children can pull on the rope to maneuver the boat.
A painting I entered into an Art Competition. ‘Beachhaven Sunrise’
