Rock Explosion of Bethells Quarry

We were kindly invited along to the latest rock explosion at the local Bethells Quarry, as they placed 4 tonnes of explosives deep within the rock to take back 10,000m3 in the matter of a couple of seconds.

As it was a scorcher of a day, we ventured off to Bethells Beach to cool off, and rinse the dust off 😉

Lake Wainamu – Bethells Lake

After a night out at the Auckland Lantern Festival, our friends decided to head along to Lake Wainamu for a relaxing afternoon swim and picnic. Formed over the past few thousand years, the lake is formed by a large dune running from Bethells beach to the rolling hill, locking in the water fed from three streams.
