DOSBODS Island - NZ Style

Recommended Posts

A group of New Zealanders has constructed a sand island in coastal waters in a creative attempt to avoid a ban on drinking in public places.

The group built the structure at low tide in the Tairua estuary on the Coromandel peninsula on Sunday afternoon, reports said.

They then installed a picnic table and ice box for drinks.

They claimed to be in "international waters" and thus exempt from an official liquor ban.

 

Brilliant!

So they built it 13 miles offshore?

      Lihou island off the coast of Guernsey, accessed by a causeway at low tide, wants a new warden as the current one is leaving after fourteen years.
      Comes with house, own island with sea pool. And it's paid.
      The job seems to be organising outdoor activities.
      This could be the perfect job for someone - @longtomsilver maybe?
