So after our delicious fush n chup feast, we got back on the road to Cape Reigna, which is the northernmost point of New Zealand. There’s a big lighthouse, and a sign that points to major cities, depicting how many kilometers it is to where we are
After taking ridiculous and hilarious photos of us with the lighthouse (of course... would you expect any less from us?), we headed back down, and stopped inTe Kao where Shenan FORCED me to shove Hokey Pokey ice cream down my word hole. Now. Let’s pause again for a moment. Hokey Pokey ice cream. These little NZ bastards have been keeping this treat to themselves for FAR too long. It is a disgusting shame that we have not taken this and tried to pass it off as our own mouth-orgasm inducing confectionary. Because it is the greatest ice cream that has graced this earth of ours. Little nuggets of toffee just hiding cheekily in rich vanilla creamy yumyums. Ohhhhh.... Okay. I need to stop thinking about it
Then we hit up Ninety Mile Beach, where we actually got to bloody DRIVE onto the beach, much to Shenan’s discomfort. LOL It was pretty scary a few times. But we got out, and had a great time frolicking in the tide. It’s just amazing, nothing but beautiful sandy beach, picturesque and tranquil, as far as you can see. And Amber got to remember that REAL LIVING things live in the ocean, as evidence by the creepy tenticles climbing up through the sand at her feet.
Great meal on the way back in Monganui (these guys even do PIZZA better than us!? WTF? Roast chicken with cashews, brie and mushrooms? NOM NOM!).
OH. And we’ve finally had the “Accent Barrier” affect us. While driving and talking about the coming week’s adventures.... well, let’s just play this out like this. The following was what I heard of our conversation in the car.
AMBER: .... when we go Zorbing in Rotorua...
SHENAN: Oh, have you got a pig?
AMBER: Um.... what?
SHENAN: A pig. Have you got a pig?
AMBER: A pig? Why would I need a pig?
SHENAN: For your clothes
AMBER: .... WHAT? What about a pig?
SHENAN: Do... you... have... a... pig?
AMBER: WHAT THE FUCK WOULD I NEED A PIG FOR?!?!?
SHENAN: To hang your undies on if they get wet!
AMBER: ???? OOOOHHHH!!!!! A PEG!!!! OH MY GOD. I thought you said PIG.
(SFX: Hysterical tear-inducing laugher for a full 15 kilometers.)
Yup. They talk funny downunder.
So now I’m sipping a wine while I share my adventure. He’s feeding me blue vein cheese on crackers with olives right now. Yup. BIG TIME DIRTY FIGHTER. I’m keeping him. SEU! (BTW. I heard that it snowed in Medicine Hat recently.. that’s a shame.... *snicker*) Arohanui!
