My first Blipmeet
Mylo and her husband are in New Zealand for a couple of weeks, having arrived in Auckland direct from Edinburgh yesterday afternoon. S and I arranged to collect them from their central city hotel this morning, and we took them out to Mission Bay, driving along Tamaki Drive to get there. Despite the slightly chill wind, and the cloudy sky, it was a really pleasant and very enjoyable time. Ice creams for all.
Do look at this large as between S, Mylo and H and the three paddle boarders, is a small shag. Unseen with the naked eye as I wasn't looking there. Nevertheless, it's nice and sharp in the picture.
We then returned to the central city and to Ponsonby Road for a coffee and snack. Nice outside table at Bambina, one of the cafes I have previously blipped. Good strong and flavoursome coffee. Great conversation and I enjoyed the musical Scottish accents.
While it would have been good to show them Snells as well, their travel plans have them passing by there (both on the way north as well as back south) when we are not there. Perhaps we'll meet in Scotland some time.
