It was a sparkling day today. Rosie had the day off work and cousin Emma is in town. We decided it would be nice to go for an outing. So, Chucky, Rosie, Emma, Carly, Asher, and I piled in the car and headed out to Raglan. We sat and watched a bunch of school kids get surf lessons from a hilltop picnic table where we savagely devoured a meagre serving of over-priced fish and chips. Then we lay in the sun on the hilltop and surveyed the panoramic extravaganza of sand, sea, and sky.
