We went to Port Waikato after brunch this morning. It's a lovely black sand beach and we planned to clamber over the rocks, looking in the rockpools and searching for dinosaur fossils. Unfortunately we didn't think to check the tide times and arrived to see very few rocks and certainly no rockpools! Maybe it was the end of the tsunami that made the tide particularly high! Anyway, we spent a lovely while sitting in the sunshine, watching the waves and keeping an eye on two surfers who seemed to have swum a long way out in the hope of catching the ideal wave. Rather them than me!
