The usual things that are done on a national day ,get together with friends & family ,enjoy a day off and try to ignore anything any politician says.:)
Here in NZ we have the added bonus of cheerful and light hearted contractual debate. :rolleyes:

I enjoyed going to the ceremony at the Bay of Islands when I lived over there.

Ran home in front of a wind warning monday evening which cut us short a day. It still went 30 at times. Waitangi day itself was fine but it breezed up a bit fierce and I notice the gulf was upgraded to a gale warning.
So we went for bike ride, a bit of shopping:rolleyes: lazy day.Discovered a furniture maker making beautiful quality furniture. Beds, chests, side tables and the likes.Fantastic workmanship with a price you'd expect once you'd thought about it and acclimatised yourself to a life of debt.

It rained like hell all day here, so I stayed home and did some reading.
It is still raining and the river is rising, over 170mm rainfall.

There was a 994 low dropping south off Fiji yesterday when I looked, and a TC ( 'Nelson' IIRC) up Darwin way worth watching for.
