A beautiful rose that is colour co-ordinated with their uniform. I just took the photo half an hour ago.
This weekend flower is an orangy yellow rose. I am dedicating this to the wonderful people who are volunteers of the Piha Surf Life Saving Club. Especially to Sophie and Grace who instead of enjoying the sun, sand and surf, they were at Pt Chevalier Mall trying very hard to get people to buy their calender. I asked them if I could do a blog of them as I appreciate their hard work. They are the heros that we so often that for granted.Piha is a very dangerous beach and it is made worse when people don't swim in between the flags and do stupid things. I am watching Piha Rescue on TV and often my heart is in my mouth. I work with a friend who gives up her weekend at the beach. She tells me sometimes there are silly people who go during the off season when there is nobody and jump into the beach fully clothes.
I remember once upon a time, I almost drowned at Piha when a rip current carried me out to the sea. Since then, I don't go to the sea even though the beach is 5 minutes from my house.
