We awake to a sunny day and so take the opportunity to got to Waipu beach with Vikki and family, on our way back to Aukland. On our way to the beack we stop at a beautiful waterfall nearby, and having tom boy Monica in the back in the car with us, the rest of the journey to Waipu is fun when we continually crush eachother whilst over reacting on the bends.
The beach itself is amazing, Claire and Jo have never swum before in a sea with such strong waves and current, and Mark shows his water baby side when he dives straight in, his head bobbing back up every now and again between jumping under huge waves. You can take the boy out of New Zealand... When Claire tells Monica that Jo isn't a strong swimmer and that we've never been in a sea this unruly, she rolls her eyes and says "you guys are idiots." Love it.
We spend the rest of the sunny afternoon playing 'hold' rugby on the beach, swimming and making barbie girl Michaela into a sand mermaid. On the way back to the car, Dina has hysterics when Vikki is saying how proud she is of her kids, Claire walks in front of them with a cowboy stride due to the chaffing caused by salt water and board shorts going, "oooh aaaah oow ooh" with every step. Dina says, "and Im so proud of mine too." After getting showered and changed we bid farewell and drive back to Natalie's in Auckland.
