I have had a sore tooth for a few weeks now but last Friday a whole lot of filling came out of it and I spent the entire weekend with raging toothache. Trust me I was taking pain relief on a regular basis all weekend. Today I bit the bullet so to speak and went to my Dentist for an evaluation. Where they evaluated how much money they could extract from me. Turns out they want to do a ROOT CANAL and it turns out I am going to have an EXTRACTION! $200 versus $1100, no brainer for me!
So next week this will be me!
I have a course of antibiotics to take and my pain relief until then, I may rattle when I walk with all the pills jumping around inside me. Just hope they stop the pain.
Anyway, enough of that,
yesterday we did indeed drive out to Raglan,
in the rain,
in the Man Car!!
The West Coast was wet and wild for sure, but not that cold. I don't mind what the weather is at the beach, it always looks beautiful, so natural and strangely relaxing. Our country is pure GOLD when it comes to fabulous scenery.
This is the road heading to a car park!!
No one was brave enough to take advantage of the outdoor seating
with the best views in the house.
People were out walking on the beach
but no one was surfing.
A stormy looking Manu Bay.
The rain kept falling
the wind kept blowing!
This little dude brightened up a some what dull day.
We stopped in at a cafe for a hot drink and some cake, which we enjoyed in the warmth of the Man car while parked in our favourite Street, Cliff Street, which is on the edge of the harbor.
The drive home was a wet one!
Somehow everything still looked awesome, slightly magical with the hazy rain and mist. Cows huddled together to keep warm I guess, either that or they were having an important meeting at the fence.
Back home Tex helped TOF read the paper.
Wonder how much I will get for my
manky old tooth?
$200 would be nice.
