Did you hear about it…the weather bomb (yes, that’s how it was called!) over the North Island of New Zealand? Yep, crazy weather upon New Zealand last weekend…my dad got in from Sydney 35 minutes early pushed by a jetstream at times flying at over 1000 km/h!! We went out to Muriwai beach on the day of the storm – to one of NZ largest gannet colonies -  and got absolutely drenched. It was awesome…the gannets had the times of their lives lifting up and down with the winds – dad wanting to take off with them!!
