whatipu is a lovely place to the west of auckland on the edge of the local rainforest

you have to pass huia on the way back which is lovely too

and its swirling esturaries at low tide are quite pretty

the sand is black like most of the west coast beaches due to volcanoes down the coast

we went on a muddy walk which involved taking shoes off because it was so muddy.  not bad for the equivalent of end of January northern hemisphere time

when we got to the caves we were searching for we couldn’t go in as they were too dangerous.  but there was an interesting looking toilet

i went to see brmc with a work colleague last night.

100723_850_img_1296.jpg

they were excellent and plenty loud enough (concerts do seem to be a lot louder over here – probably to do with all the lovely clean air)

this last picture is a visual representation on the volume and feedback

the lovely mrs funkypancake had a birthday today.  the girls got her these lovely yellow bathroom products

100722_850_img_1280.jpg

and they also made some lovely cards.  kezia went for a rather complicated motif

jane’s friends got her this lovely ceramic wall thing

100722_850_img_1285.jpg

and i got her this savoury muffin.  i didn’t even need to take the price off because i got it free from a cafe which was shutting for the day

100722_850_img_1287.jpg

knowing this was not good enough i also got her a bath bomb which isn’t an explosive.  but it was really dusty and i inhaled a good mouthful as she opened it and i’ve not been quite right since.

birthdays hey.
