LIFE: Day at the beach
AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Yesterday we went out to the family bach, or beach house, at Kare Kare, about 45 minutes northwest of Auckland proper. It's a beautiful place, tucked away in a rain forest with towering canyons and a fantastic beach. It might look vaguely familiar to anyone who's ever seen "The Piano." Several scenes at the start of the movie were filmed here. It wasn't the best day to take photos - summer weather has fled us for a few days - but you get the idea. Fantastic place.
Also, some advice:
Go hard or go home. Slip slap sloppy!
