Last week Elder Bennett decided to try his hand at some fishing down by the cliffs at Takapuna Beach.
He had a few bites, but didn't hook into anything yet. Next time he will try a smaller hook and experiment with different kinds of bait.
What he DID catch was the avid interest of several young boys who were playing on the beach.
It was so fun watching him explain how the hook was set up and letting them touch the squid he was using for bait. They were enthralled.
So the only fish to be had that day was one I made in the sand, but we had a great time together and loved watching the sheer joy of all the children, families, dogs who were out enjoying the day.
