Fond memories of Opo- noni and Taupo Bay have ensured their in- clusion in a new book about beaches. Beached As -- Then and Now is a coffee ta- ble book featuring photos of beaches up and down the country. Photographer and writer Craig Levers, known as CPL, says the book pays homage to his auntie Audrey who was an inveterate trav- eller and photographer. The book retraces her travels and replicates many of her photos dating back to the 1940s, showing the changes. Beached As -- Then and Now is arranged for best visual impact rather than following North to South or alphabetical order. Craig believes he saved the best for last by finishing with Opononi in the Hokianga. I do remember going on road trips with mum and dad and auntie Audrey a couple of times as a child. It's just such an amazing harbour beach and such an amazing part of New Zealand.'' But the book is not just about auntie Aud- rey's beach journeys. It also features favourite beaches that were missed from Craig's first book Beach As, published by PhotoCPL Media in 2009. Taupo Bay featured highly when more than 200 people voted on their favourite New Zealand beach after the release of volume one. Whangarei's Sandy Bay also ranked high and also features in Then and Now, he says. While Beached As -- Then and Now shows many developments at New Zealand's beaches, Craig says a lot have changed for the better. Even though we're increasingly aware of coastal development, there's also been a huge amount of coastal re- generation with farm- ers gifting back land to councils and councils converting what once was farm land back to bush.'' Fun entry: This entry from last year was titled The Bride was Half Scottish.
