So no beach for Poppy for a few days...
Rainer and I headed for Piha, yet another beach , but this one is loaded with unusual caves and rock formations. I promised not to pick up any more shells (I lied) . I am sure there may be beaches like this in Hawaii but I have never seen things like this in my country.
This is Piha's Lion Rock
This rock as well as most of New Zealand grew from lava flows which are clearly visible .
eat your heart out Dora LOL what a fabulous experience. I could not get enough distance for you to see what I could see. The back end of the large room narrowed down into a much smaller tunnel. Fallen rocks nearby made me a bit leery to go deeper inside.
I did find many more purple shells, bigger then those at the first beach . I also found ones that look like worms. I'm thinking they actually are worm skeletons. Oh customs should love me. I'm thinking about sending a box home because my collections are getting a bit out of hand.
I love the natural flora here.
I tasted my first Buttered chicken (Indian) for dinner. Packia has become my new favorite food. They are fried onion balls...I LOVE them.
Each day, as I make a new entry in this Blog I feel very close to my family and friends. Even though you are not with me in person, you are with me in spirit and I hope you are having fun sharing the experience.
I keep for getting to take flat Norma and Patricia to the beach, but I will take them back to Piha. There is so much more to explore there. We even talked about a sleep over . Should the weather get bad there are shallow caves we could move to. We first have to decide if the body's are as willing as the spirit LOL
See you tomorrow.....(Don't forget, you can click on the pictures to make them bigger)
