March is a wonderful month to visit New Zealand and the West Coast.
Often we can be getting some of our most consistent nice weather – cool mornings but soon warming once the sun comes out and staying warm right until the sun goes down at the end of the day.
Perfect for early evening walks along the beach.
The different tides make it a different walk each evening moving the sand, stones and driftwood and of course exactly where we can walk – or run as the case may be with the incoming tides.
All in good fun although Mr Photographer gets mighty close sometimes with Mother Nature trying her hardest to get him wet. Warm evenings though doesn’t really matter as the water is reasonably warm still too.
The dogs love their evening beach walks, especially Nico as it is a little cooler than the midday sun and with his thick coat makes it more bearable for him and we even get him running on occasions.
Love this shot though – looks like someone shrunk him lol Should read those washing instructions more carefully in future…….
Gorgeous days lead to gorgeous evenings which leads to well gorgeous sunsets of course!
Been some rippers lately. All in all I’d say March is a great time to visit the West Coast, but then again anytime is a good time :-)
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. Together with their faithful friends the family dogs, Nico and Ziggy, they enjoy getting out and exploring the many wonders that are the West Coast of the Southern Alps.
