Mr Cray & the Kelpmonster!
We had a lazy morning with both of us spending time on-line. June dropped Mr Cray off to us around 11:30, and we prepped him to take down to the Boathouse, after admiring and photographing the hefty beast. Unbelievably, we had the place to ourselves, and could barely make it through half of Mr Cray, washed down with some bubbles. After cleaning up we took him home to the fridge and lolled a bit as we started to digest him, before walking down the road to Emma’s place for some festivities. We had a lovely time, with delicious desserts and a wee kitteh to play with.
Matt headed down to the bakery for some coffee, bread rolls for the cray later on, and bacon and egg pies for brekky! Low tide was just after 8am, so I headed for British to see what was new. There was hardly anything on the beach itself, but plenty on the rocks and the adjacent bay. I had a fabulous couple of hours (felt like a whole lot more!) and took over 200 photos.
I also stopped off at another outcrop for a look at the gully there – the tide was well out and I could get right amongst it all. I got home and found a message from June asking us to dinner that night – wonderful!
The rest of the day was spent blobbing, with a quick trip down to Manuka in the afternoon, but it was far too bright for photos. So then it was a few steps across the road to enjoy a lovely turkey dinner, plus oysters for those who can!
