So yesterday was ANZAC day here in New Zealand which is a public holiday.

From Wikipedia:

"Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served".[1][2] Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I."

And we spent the day out at Mahurangi Regional Park having a BBQ (because it wasnt a braai with coals n stuff) swimming, kayaking and just enjoying the wonderful weather we had. Probably the last swimming weekend for the season though.

Here is a video I filmed of me and a friend kayaking around the bay, you know... just because.
