Just for fun, we decided to explore a remote beach on the Wainuiomata coast. It's about half an hour's drive from Wellington, and we nearly had the place to ourselves. We are told this is a good place to see fur seals and sea birds.
It didn't take long for the kids to get into the water.
Plenty of big rocks to climb and explore. So exciting to find puddles of water with creatures in them up on top of a big pile of rock.
And did I mention that there were sheep? Most of this beach is private property - grazing sheep. I can't say that I've ever been to a beach with sheep before.
