"So… next time you’re in Auckland and wanting some chill time by the beach.. you now know where to go." 😉
After a rough week of earthquakes, tsunami alerts, strong gale winds and rain and heavy flooding... NOTHING BEATS WELLINGTON ON A GOOD DAY.

"Maori folklore tells two stories relating to the color of these rocks. In one, Kupe - the famous Polynesian explorer - was gathering Paua ( large edible sea snails ) here when one clamped his hand. He bled and stained the rocks red. In the other story, the red is the blood of Kupe's daughters. Fearing for their father's safety on a long voyage, they gashed themselves in grief over his absence."
Spending Christmas last year in this paradise was the BEST idea ever ❤ Note: I would like to thank my friend Dorothy Sanchez for some of her photos that are posted here.😊❤️ The 10 minute walk from Medlands Beach to Bark Bay. 2. A good dose of greenery and sparkling blue waters along the way.…
