The water is colder, but my fandabby new wetsuit is amazing and keeps me nice and toasty.
On the second dive I heard weird clicking, whistling noises. I've never heard them before and couldn't work out what they were. When we surfaced I asked Dan if he'd heard them. He had - Dolphins!!! So we were swimming around in earshot of dolphins - we didn't see them, they could have been far away, but it was an amazing thing to hear! I won't forget that in a hurry.
I call these underwater daisies!
Me, being an air head!
I know this is all fuzzy, but I like it - When I'm underwater I feel totally at home, I love it. I sort of feel all serene.
( which I pretty much never feel on land!!)
It was absolutely freezing, though, and I didn't really thaw out until the following morning!
On Sunday Lloyd and I drove down to Auckland - Flight of the Conchords were playing at the Vector Arena. They're terribly funny, talented guys. They'd played a lot of smaller venues throughout NZ, but hadn't made it very far north and also the tickets were like gold dust. So they decided to see if they could fill a huge stadium. They did - almost three times over! And what I loved was that they kept the ticket prices low so that at a push anyone could afford to go. Our seats were shocking - way up in the gods, third row from the top - but they were right in the centre. ( admission time - I am totally terrified of heights - I tried to send my friend a text and my hands were shaking so much it was utter nonsense!) However once they came on stage I almost forgot about how high up we were. They were brilliant. Real laugh out loud brilliant. It was also great, cos we met up with a couple of friends we hadn't seen for years and had an absolutely lovely time with them.
Terrible picture, sell out audience, very high up!
We got home later on in the afternoon yesterday and really didn't have the energy to do much! So, Lloyd got some soup he'd made out of the freezer and I made some dough, and made it into sort of garlicy bread roly poly, pull aparts. And I have to say they were way nicer than any bread I've made!! I'll most definitely make them again they were absolutely yummy with the soup.
