Fresh from Wellington South Coast. Te Kopahou Reserve to be exact.
As you may have heard, there was some shaking on the North Island of New Zealand, a 6.2 quake. As Wellingtonians we are pretty used to some shaking, though this one was a bit more than usual.
As far as I'm aware, there were no injuries and no damage, so everything is fine and our Royal guests made it through the shaking without a scratch! Actually, there were no reports if they noticed it at all, up in Auckland.
Half an hour after this excitement I checked for the winds and found it might be worth having a look at the coast - And voilà, there they were, the waves.
They had nothing to do with the quake though, just normal strong southerly winds.
