It was unimaginable, but we heard that in New Zealand, on the north island, there was a beach while scalding hot water. The catch is, you have to bring a spade and dig. Dig into the sand, make a little pool, and it will fill with hotttttt water.
I'm pretty sure it blew the kids' minds. Isaac made it another of his "best days ever" and Izzy did not want to get out of her personal sand jacuzzi. The day was chilly and cold, really quite moody... but that Hot Water Beach warmed us all right up. Thank you to our client Sherilyn for the amazing suggestions on what beaches to hit.
If you are sick of seeing beautiful blue skies and stunning beaches, don't fret. Our NZ documentation is nearly over. :) Until next year, that is!
