Wellington’s summer was at its early best today, giving special pleasure to scores of swimmers at Island Bay.
Temperatures reached as high as 23 degrees.
At Princess Bay, too, the warm temperatures encouraged swimmers into the chilly waters of Cook Strait.
As many people relaxed, KiwiRail’s two remaining Cook Strait ferries continued trying to meet an impossible demand.
A typical south coast pleasure, family fun in the rock pools.
And up in the hills, another summer recreation. This was McAlister Park, where cricketers paid no attention to the distant views of the south coast.
