Sunday morning dawned brighter, Taylor was keen to join me for a ride on the bike. We headed off around Whitford, Clevedon, and Maratai. The ride Around the coast is beautiful, and is one of the most scenic spots close to Auckland you will find. Before long we were stopping at Pine Harbour Marina for a coffee and hot chocolate. Taylor suddenly seems keen on rides on the bike, although I have offered many times before it is only now that she is showing interest. Even a short ride is fun though, and I always enjoy the one on one time with either of my kids. Having the chance to chat without any distractions is great. It is amazing what we actually end up talking about. In a few weeks time she turns 13, my little girl is growing up fast. It is great to see her growing up, being independent and making me proud. She is a determined and motivated girl. But a part of me misses my little girl. I treasure more and more these little moments we share together, because I realise it wont be long and they will stop completely.
