This is my new buddy Charlie:
The shop is open 9-6. I work 12-3. We used to surf during lunch breaks but now that we work opposite we just take turns. When we are not surfing or eating I don't have a ton to do (anyone have a freelance project they need me to do?). So I've started hanging out with 6 year old Charlie Tupaea. We play hide and seek or ride bikes down the hill. He likes to spy on Amalia when she is reading in the tent. They have a dog Jules (or Jewels, I don't know). She fetches anything, including rocks. Today she was picking up rocks out of the bottom of the estuary and swimming out with them. Crazy dog. I tried to take a picture but she kept moving. Charlie says she doesn't like cameras.
This is a picture of Brooke's special place. You have to hike through some serious bush to get there, but it is right behind their house.
And this is the view from there:
The Tupaeas live in a pretty awesome place.
