Tsunami's in Careys Bay!

So on Saturday night, we were discussing the delicious contents of the earthquake emergency box at my folks' place in Wellington.... like we have anything to worry about down here in Dunedin right? We decided that the only real threat was if there was a big earthquake in Chile.... considering where it is in relation to where we are. Well whadya know- we woke up to find that there had indeed been a tsunami warning issues due to a mega earthquake in Chile. Wierd.
So even though it was low tide at the time, we decided that considering our front door is 3m from where this photo was taken- we should bail (excuse the pun!). The pic above was high tide that night- it was HIGH! So we are glad the 60cm surge didnt come through then!
