Flat Stanley is heading back home to California tomorrow and asked if he could see where we like to spend time in our community before he leaves.  So, this morning I took Flat Stanley for a walk along Lyall Bay Beach…

Flat Stanley climbed all over the driftwood.

Flat Stanley loved to watch the sea birds walking on the sand.  We found a few birds a bit further along the beach…

Flat Stanley wanted to run  all the way to the end!

We walked to the western end of Lyall Bay Beach, where there are houses right on the beach.

When we reached the houses, Flat Stanley asked if we could turn around and walk all the way to the eastern end of the beach.  I love to walk along the beach, so I walked with Flat Stanley along the beach, close to the waves, to see if we could find anything interesting on the beach.

Flat Stanley found heaps of cool rocks on the beach and a neat paua shell sitting on the shingle.

Flat Stanley was excited to find this beautiful paua shell!

Flat Stanley was a bit tired of walking, but we made it all the way to the eastern end of Lyall Bay Beach, right next to the runway at the Wellington Airport!

Flat Stanley was hungry, so I bought him a burger at Ekim Burgers.  They set up a caravan next to the beach.  As it turns out, today is the last day Ekim Burger will be open at this beach.  They are moving into a shop in downtown Wellington.

Flat Stanley got to meet Mike Duffy of Ekim Burgers!
