One Word Photo Challenge: Tsunami

Port Ahirii-245

Yesterday I went to Port Ahuriri.  Last week we were battered by a storm.  This looks calm but you can only just see some patterns of the pebbles left from some strong surf.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: A Serendipitous Ice Cream

At Hot Chick-292

Good morning from a foggy Hastings day.  After the cold blast last week we now have a warmer week.  It is nice not having to have a fire all day and to sit in the sun knitting.

Yesterday was another warm day.  I had to go over to Napier for an appointment so I visited my parents with my son for lunch.  After the appointment I then headed down to Ahuriri.  Which is Maori for Napier.  An iconic eatery is the Hot Chick.  Basically it grills chickens and has the best hot chips in town.  This coffee price is actually a good price as well.  Even in winter there is a spot to sit and enjoy watching the surf.

They also have a good selection of an iconic New Zealand brand of ice cream.  My son had a chocolate ice cream, while I had a peaches and cream one.  The ice cream always tastes better at the beach.

There are some interesting names – such as this goody goody gum drops.

Finally Coca Cola is everywhere.  It was the top number that caught my eye – extremely cold and the -3.1.  Just a bit too cold to drink in winter.  But in summer this is the chiller to go to.
