There are a lot of events on the weekend that this Chronicle comes out – so I hope you get this issue in time to go to them. See calendar on page 38 for events.

Recently I visited Tairua and Pauanui. I haven’t visited either before. On Tairua surf beach I got stung by a bee which I had accidently stepped on. This happened only a few weeks after my daughter got stung the same way at Simpson’s Beach.

After years of living on the peninsula it is my first time getting stung by a bee at the beach. I am told they come out of the bush as they like to get salt from walking on the sand. I wonder if it always happens at this time of year, or something different about this year, or if the bees don’t come to the beaches usually I go to. With this in mind I thought it was appropriate to print the bee haiga that I received from John Irvine a while ago (see page 3 of the May issue).
