kite surfing hot spot

Recently we saw an 8m humpback whale being rescued in Auckland Harbour, and as the tide was coming in fast it was too deep for us to get out to help it. Instead we watched the kite surfers at their favourite local spot. We heard later in the day that the whale was heading safely out to see thanks to the help of Project Jonah and DOC who were there with their inflatable and divers to help turn the whale around and head back out to sea.

hand fed pets

Most people have goldfish, cats and often a dog.  We have snapper! Although we don't get to cuddle them, they keep us company, and often finish off the left over chicken casserole (their favourite)....

Our loyal pets...
