On a less destructive note, last weekend H and I went on a geologising trip up to Motonau Beach to see if we could find anything cool.
It was a beautiful day and a nice beach with some pretty awesomely steep and pointy sand cliffs. We found quite a few crab fossils that are waiting on the rock shelf of death to be extracted.
There were also some pretty awesome bivalves, both external and internal casts.
Hopefully more geologising to happen soon. H and his geeky geology friends are off mapping liquefaction around the city after the earthquake. Apparently there are some monster sand volcanoes out there!
