A couple of months ago we’ve arrived in Wellington, and this is what it felt like:

We have been looking forward to this moment for a long time. Finally in Wellington, WITH our new home. Two nights at Russell Terrace behind the zoo and now we’ve moved to the South Coast. And what shall I say? Wellington is greeting us with the mildest, calm autumn weather – we’re frigging swimming in Princess Bay in April!

Rock pools, beaches, mountain views, mobile network, free – is this the camp we’ve always been looking for? The kids get right into exploring, assimilating, crab-like, crawling ragged rocks, clinging to cliffs.

This wild, remote and yet so close coast draws us in again. It always felt like a special place of wilderness when we lived in Wellington; respite from the coolest, tiniest big smoke in the world. After traveling all over the South Island, it’s great how this can happen here, right at our past doorstep.

  1. Hi there wow I love the life you are living made better with littlies to share it with you. Ours seems very ordinary in comparison. Amazing photos. Must file that spot Princess Bay away for when we go north next year! Currently we are at Weedons heading south for a 3rd birthday in Wanaka ( in a very leisurely manner) at the end of June, then will head up the coast to Nelson area for a couple of months. We spent last Sat with our nephews watching them playing rugby at Culverden can’t wait to see them in the black jersey of the AB’s
