The rain stopped for one glorious day on Saturday so we made the most of it and headed to the beach. We took Rosie, Pete, Amy, Harry and of course Gracie to Bethels beach for the first time- one of our favourite beaches. We had so much fun swimming/paddling in the water and getting sand everywhere! One on the highlights was Paul pulling Harry along the water on a body board and Harry thinking this was the best thing ever!

Last weekend Paul ran his second half-marathon along with Pete and a few others from church. Gracie, myself, Rosie, Matilda and Harry all set off early to cheer our men in on the finishing line from about 8am. Paul did really well, beating his previous time from last month (he can give you the exact timings!). It was a beautiful day and we spend the rest of the morning soaking up the sun and enjoying the vibe. Well done Paul, we are so proud!

On the 2nd July this year I went for my first run in a very long time... I ran 1.6km and it took me 15 minutes (I know this because I logged it on www.mapmyrun.com).

Well tomorrow morning I'm running in the Auckland Half Marathon. I haven't entered a running race since the egg and spoon at primary school, so I have a mixture of nerves, anticipation, and excitement. It should be a lot of fun!

This week I (Paul) went away with the staff from St Paul's to a beautiful place called Tarawharanui; It's a national park an hour or so North East of Auckland. I thought I'd write about it because I had a couple of experiences that I've not had before.
Firstly, on Wednesday afternoon we took a rowing boat out to a place in the bay, where we dived for scallops - this was great fun, although diving down to 5 or so meters and then trying to find scallops proved to be exhausting. We took 34 scallops back to our bach once done and they were cooked up and served as a nice mid afternoon snack!
