Polar bear birthday

10 April  New Zealand time

Hi there

Its my birthday!  It's also Wahine Day, the day, in history when the passenger ferry, Wahine, sunk in Wellington Harbour with a terrible loss of life;  the worst storm in living memory.  So whilst I am whooping it up, receiving birthday wishes from my loved ones, the radio and newspapers are going on about today being a sad day in New Zealand history.

My swimming friend J and I have begun to liken ourselves to polar bears because we swim at Hataitai Beach during the winter.  So, at exactly midnight, J emailed me birthday wishes, along with the below picture -

Thanks, J.
