Chris wanted to go fly toy aeroplanes at Raglan, which is a west coast surf beach about two hours south of Auckland. I'd never been, so I figured it would at least get me out of the house for a day!
Aside from the occasional showers, it was okay weather (though windy). The aeroplanes were fine - at least gliders aren't loud. But we were a *long* way from the town, and there was no toilet, and I got hungry. So eventually my physical needs won out and we climbed back down the hill!
At least I had some good photo opportunities (though it was so windy that everything is a little blurred). Sadly, I have now realised that my camera is dirty on the *inside*, so I am going to have to send it away for cleaning... wish me luck!
