Don't look down!

Robyn and I noticed this young woman (Nicola) climbing a a really scary rock face way the hell up the side of Mauao.
When she got down we had a quick chat. She was down from Auckland with a climbing friend and having a blast on some of our local climbs. She has been climbing for two years.

Food Photos. A Kiwi favorite.

I am not a fan of food photos. But good home made pies are the exception especially when they are on my plate. A good old Kiwi favorite (and UK I suspect) is "Pea, Pie, Pud"
Robyn pulled out the stops with these beauties and this Kiwi favorite. Mostly I remember this style of meal from the days when you went to the pub till you could only just make it to the pie cart and barely stammer out your order!
