I wanted to go for a walk along a beach this morning but the beach I went to was fully occupied and I didn't feel inclined to disturb the regulars. As I sat and looked and just breathed in the serenity, it started to rain. Decision made, no walk. Aucklanders are lucky to have places such as this where one can re-charge the batteries. It was nearly 10 am, school holidays, and not a soul in sight. The weather probably had something to do with that. The photo is crap, shot through the windscreen.
My daughter is back in hospital, just a minor set back I think. She was recovering so well from the surgery, it is just wonderful to see her with no pain in her back. I'm sure she will continue to make good progress once they sort out the leg pain and her innards. I don't want to broadcast to the world about the state of her innards, I'll just leave that to your imagination.
