We had such craptastic weather over Christmas that the arrival of summer at long last doesn't seem quite real!
We (and half of Auckland) took advantage of the holiday today for Auckland Anniversary to head out to Muriwai Beach. First the beach at Maori Bay (next to Muriwai)
Then up onto the headland to see the Gannet colony there...
...and finished with an icecream - not photographed as I kept my iPhone well away from melty icecream!
Today Mat found a page out of a diary that Hazel must have started, abandoned and then discarded that says (translation to follow): Rily rily tierd!!! Today. In desprit ned of pony tile. Wishing it was yastoday. [Really really tired today! In desperate need of pony tail*. Wishing it was yesterday.] Where did she learn to sound like Bridget Jones?
*chewy little gummy My Little Pony snack. She is allowed to have one a day.
