During winter when activities are mostly indoors, it's easy to forget that we actually live right at the coast. I found myself being pleasantly surprised at the rolling waves and colour of the ocean when I delivered Aaron and his bicycle to Patiti Point to meet up with Nick and Caleb and two others who had already cycled the 6 kms from home. Aaron had been subbed onto a soccer team early morning and arrived home just as Nick was leaving here. He was gutted to miss the outing, so it was great that he could still join in from the other side. It was a gorgeous day, finally, after all the rain - well, for at least an hour or two anyway before the clouds rolled in again!
