Admittedly we didn't make it to the beach on New Years day as planned but for the sake of tradition we'll pretend that its still 1.1.11.
For the last couple of years we have headed to the beach on New Years day. Here are some pics from this year:
It was insanely hot (top temp for Christchurch today was 31 degrees!) and really windy so we didn't stay long. We also had a little run in with the tide which caught us by surprise as we were sitting with our backs to the sea. We had just enough time to jump up before it swamped us. Would've given any spectators a good laugh! Riley got a huge fright (hes not a fan of the sea).
