This looks totally alien (but it’s also totally ordinary)
Just think of it as more beach to explore?
A beach in New Zealand just got a new tourist attraction: a six foot wall of seabed.
Chris shares some pics from Kaikoura, New Zealand, here.
This is our third day in Gisborne, counting the travel day. Photos from the trip in, and yesterday, where we did a walk at Tolaga Bay to Cook’s Cove, where Captain Cook was “stuck” unable to get out for a week or so.
Police officers in New Zealand have delivered a toasted sandwich to a distressed elderly woman, it’s been reported.
Far from being a trivial call-out, the mercy dash by officers based in the North Island town of Wanganui was in response to the news that the 90-year-old had not eaten for three days and was “distressed and desperate”, the Wanganui Chronicle reports. The woman lived alone, had been unwell and had been unable to get food delivered, according to Sgt Colin Wright. “I don’t know how many places or who she’d phoned. She had obviously tried a couple of fish and chip shops and probably there was nobody else to call,” he tells the paper. A patrol picked up a sandwich from a local fish and chip shop and delivered it to the woman. Sgt Wright tells the paper it’s the police’s role to help the vulnerable, elderly and lonely in society. “We could even have gone back to the police station and cooked one up ourselves,” he says.
Good on them!
More helping people like this, please, police!
