There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Probably leading the Route66 lot, sure to be some "tasty ribs" awaiting taste tests.

That Kawau Bay area is fairly rural isn't it?

Not uncommon for people to be out shooting pests, rabbits, possums,etc... I wouldn't bat an eyelid if I heard some gunshots in that local.

It'd be absolutely terrible if you were lining up a bunny on the beach and accidentally overshoot it and got that protected Leopard Seal though.

Of course it would be a little difficult justifying exactly why you were using a .308 to hunt rabbits...

 

from your boat...

Animal causing inconvenience to commuters is shot by police on safety grounds.

 

Who would have thought such a thing was possible?

Nice analogy.

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.

I thought this juxtaposition in the latest Westhaven newsletter was mildly amusing...

So a swim with an apex predator day.. how cool! If Owha is around at the time I would seriously consider coming up to Auckland to watch that. They should make a real day of it and go for a run in the zoo lion enclosure afterwards followed by a wee lie down in a snake pit...
