Since getting back home in the city for New Years, I’ve been able to get back to the gym a bit. It’s great – Wellington’s not really a summer destination so everyone clears out of the city and places like the gym are empty. You’re almost guaranteed to get the gear you’re after. No waiting. It’s great.
But when the sun comes out, you have to make the most of it – get outside and enjoy the fresh air!
We’ve had a run of good weather recently (except New Years Eve, because this is Wellington and that would have been too easy. See earlier ‘not really a summer destination’ comment) so we planned to have a walk around to the seal colony at Red Rocks.
There weren’t any seals – it’s the completely wrong time of year (we’d need to be there in winter). But the walk was good.
Great company. Good views.
Nice start to the day.
Learned a couple of things today, too.
- Bees like purple. Don’t have purple on or around your crotch. This can lead to very tense moments.
- Always wear sunblock. Always. And it you think you have enough on, put some more on anyway.
- You don’t have to sit down to get sand in your pants, unfortunately. (WTF? Wellington, you’re a creepy kind of windy). Also, bonus lesson: you never grow out of it.
Yup. You learn something new everyday.
What did you get up to today?
