The four of us went off to the beach (with Alex driving). We first headed to a hill with a splendid view over the coast at Paekakariki and then headed down to the beach for a stroll alond the dark sanded beach. We took a very interesting narrow mountain road back (Moonshine Valley). I’m relieved I wasn’t driving. In the evening we played scrabble and drank wine and liqueurs and eat some of the remaining cheese.
