One Fine Day at Scorching Bay Beach, Wellington

one fine day at Scorching Bay Beach, Wellington



As we welcomed the new year of 2022, we had some days off in the beginning of January. Noting that in New Zealand summer is on, we took this opportunity to check out the surrounding beaches that we have in the area. One of them is Scorching Bay Beach.

By the time we arrived here, there was a lovely sand castle depicting the words "Happy New Year New Zealand - 02012022". Many of us were posing and taking pictures here for sure.

Scorching Bay is located along the Great Harbour Road near Karaka Bay. It is indeed one of the favorite spots of the Wellingtonians besides Oriental Bay, which is located closer to the water front in city center.

This white sandy beach has lovely spot for swimming and relatively flat so it's safe for the kids within the designated perimeter. It has showers and changing rooms as well as playground for the kids with some climbing post and more. The good thing is, this beach has many parking spots, which can be full as well during wonderful days.

We went here with some friends and we had a picnic, while the kids (and I) played in the water as well. I didn't really call it swimming as we just played in the water. The water was so cold and I was just there for  15 minutes although the kids continued playing around.


We had fish and chips as well burgers and more for our picnic. It was delicious and practical as well as we bought it along the way. Drinks and fruits were also available so it was very fresh for all of us.

It took us around 20 minutes to reach this spot and find the parking space. Since many of the visitors had been there since early afternoon or even the morning, by the time we arrived we had the parking spot already. What a relief!

Not far from the beach, we have some scenic spot as well. We went there a week before but it was still too cold too swim at that time. We only strolled a bit and took photos there.


Cheers from the Frakarsas

So, what do you think? Will you join us on the beach as well? Come on in then.

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Others


 

2022 is here and are you ready!

So much has been going on for me and my family in 2021. Some are sad and tiring, some are super fun and full of excitement. For sure, we all hope that the new year bring along its wonderful, brights days ahead filled with happiness, health, joy and new hopes. We have been living too long under this pandemic and we definitely want it to be over and away from our lives forever. I bet we all can work it out together and ensure the safety and the health of everyone. 

As for our days in New Zealand, it has been hectic and filled with moving in to the house, visiting beaches, unpacking, decorating the house and so many more. We had 2 extra days in the first week of January and many of us had use it to go traveling around. As much as I want to do the same, I know our priorities now lie on the house and how to make it more and more comfortable for us to live in. Great thing is the view from the house is stunning. I never get bored of it. 


Now, let's join me and the ladies to our Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heart sie Girls and Others
