This weekend was spent out West, the bogan paradise of Auckland. We stayed with friends in a beautifully bushy spot that felt like we were a lot further than 20 minutes out of the city.
On Sunday after the tsunami warnings were clear, we headed to Karekare beach. The black sand burned my feet so badly I had to run very fast to the water! We then walked up to a waterfall, where Stu had a few jumps - a bit too scary for me!
