Proposal on the sand Says yes: Toni McDaid's leap year wedding proposal to partner Andrew Pinkney was accepted. Toni McDaid used the leap year tradition of the woman proposing to the man and popped the question to her partner of six years Andrew Pinkney. The marriage proposal was etched in the sand at Little Oneroa Beach by the Rotorua resident s two children Cassidy, 12, Lucia, 8, cousin Shai Robinson and sister Annie Hall. Andrew thought he was going for a swim at Little Oneroa Beach and was amazed to see a huge heart drawn in the sand with the words Andrew -- will you marry me? Toni asked Andrew to recite the words in the heart which were clearly visible. Andrew repeated the words and then it clicked that he was being proposed to, Annie s husband Chris says. Andrew blubbered and said yes .
