A few from last night walking back to my ute from the fish shop.
...

Yeah but what did ya bring home from the fish shop? I`m so longing for some real fish and chips.

Wet fish (ie fish fillets), from memory it was something unusual like Butterfish. I haven't had takeaways since before the four week lockdown at the end of March.

Stop teasing Pep, I`ve been about 1/2 a c hair from buying a new gt350 . Your pix don`t help.
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

Local ocean swim club posted a series of photos and a video from their training swim at lunchtime today around the island attached to the main beach. This is one of them...

Last weekend, Saturday started off at Round 1 of the Counties Classic Offroad Racing series. Ever since I've been involved in offroad racing, 14 years, Counties Manakau Club have been talking about building a stadium style track. It has finally come to fruition with this being the first event on their new track at Colin Dale Park, below the flight path to Auckland Airport.

















The park is a designated motorsport park, so as well as the offroad racing track and a motorcross track there is also a jetsprint track.
