Waiwera Hot Pools
Yesterday we drove up to Waiwera Hot Pools for the day. We packed up the car with a picnic, books, iPods, rugs, togs and towels. It was a stinking hot day and quite humid. We arrived early enough to grab a good spot on the grass with a table and shade. The kids had an awesome day going down the hydro-slides with names like Kids Chute, Black Hole, The Twister, Short and Sharp, Cut Buster, The Squeeze, Bob's Mistake and Speed Slide. Karl and I went down the Short and Sharp with the kids and that was enough for me (2nd photo)! Georgia took great pleasure in telling me that it's a slide for little kids but I think I shot down it 100kph! After that I was happy to spend the rest of the day reading with icy cold drinks on hand. Both kids also spent a bit of time in the pool with the giant movie screen! Just before we left we all had a Rush Munroe's ice-cream - still as good as I remember!
