Went to Dorf with @rmerzlyakov the other day, got BOTH my shoes stuck in the swamp and my feet wet and covered in mud. At least i had a ton of fun, and i didn’t come home empty handed!

Moonrise over O'Hope bay. This was the night after a huge storm hit in the day, we went down to the beach the next morning and it was covered in drift wood as far as the eye could see, whole tree ferns, palm trees, huge logs, and endless branches. There'd been a massive slip up the coast, New Zealand is a beautiful and delicate land. Surfers wading through the debry to catch the end of the swell. Nuts! If I lived there that beach would have been great to salvage for building supplies! So much wood and plants! And surprisingly little plastic 🙌 We did a bit of a litter pick and what we found were the wraps from haybales, huge sheets of green plastic wrap. Pain to dig out the sand but we did it 😊
