Sunday Stroll

Sunday morning was beautiful - sunny and hardly any wind at all. There is a saying here, "You can't beat Wellington on a good day" and Sunday was one of them. We decided to go for a walk down by the beach to help loosen up the stiffness in our legs from the run the day before.

Walking along Oriental Parade we were surprised by a camera and microphone pointing directly at us. A reporter informed us that it was "national PDA day" - she clarified that this was "Public Displays of Affection" not "Personal Digital Assistant". She had picked us out as we were the only couple holding hands while walking along the beach. She asked if we thought it was natural to hold hands, and whether we kissed in public, to which Aaron answered "No". She then asked if we would kiss for the camera - to which Aaron answered "NO!" We carried on with our walk and joked that it could potentially be on TV - but thought we were too lame and scruffy to have made the news.

Unfortunately the final question about kissing for the cameras made the evening news, much to the amusement of our work colleagues. All very surreal and entertaining.
