Family Bostock visit

Andy, Clare, Andrea and Annabel came over to New Zealand to catch up and enjoy some warmth and sunshine. We spent most of the time around Wellington, going to the local beaches, zoo, and a few visits in to town to see some of the events going on.

We also went over to the Kapiti coast, about 1 hours drive away, where a friend of mine loaned us their family beach house at Peka Peka beach. The weather wasn't always great - but we still managed to go to the beach every day and build lots of sandcastles and go boogie boarding.

We also decided to enter a team triathlon at the local Scorching Bay. Andy swam, Helen biked, Clare ran. Not the most ideal combination, but Andy didn't have any bike shoes, but could fit my wet suit. Still we managed to do it in 1 hour 25 minutes - 5 minutes faster than when I did it on my own, but I blame trying to get my wet suit off last time!

It was a lovely 2 weeks of hanging out around Wellington and spending a lot of time at the beach and relaxing with our nieces (and brother and sister in law). It will be quiet around here without you.
