Extended long weekend

Auckland Anniversary Day Regatta

Fabulous weather we've been having! After spending a couple of days on the boat (blog post pending) we decided it was a good idea to be a spectator on land rather than on the water - it was anticipated to be mayhem out there! So we went for a mid morning stroll to the Viaduct Harbour instead.

Yes, it was pretty busy out there in the Waitemata Harbour.

Tugboats - they are such agile vessels. This one was demonstrating its sideways manoeuvrability.

The classic yachts were out there racing, and they certainly are beautiful. Jef's friend has a classic yacht, and we were trying to spot it out there. We couldn't recognise the boat out there, but this one came up really close and got a massive cheer from the crowd.

We then had a spot of lunch at Jack Tar, right next to the activities.

Kien watched this guy making his puppet sing for ages. He grooved along to the music, and this would have been a perfect picture of that moment had it not been for the photobomb.

Walking back home we stopped into my work so I could show Kien the planes on display. He certainly enjoyed that.


Life's a beach

Lucky me, an extra long weekend! While most people went back to work today I headed to the beach with Rod and Grandma Gun.

After a large and very filling lunch at the local Maraetai Bach'n Cafe, we went outside to enjoy the beautiful day.

Kien had a great time skimming rocks with Rod.

It was a perfect day for being in the water. Unfortunately none of us had togs. No matter for the boy.

I could have stayed here all day! I so very much want to live at the beach. I've added that to my plan :-)
