It looks like we’re alone, but look at the last photo!
It doesn’t really matter, Hot Water Beach is fascinating: when it's low tide you dig a “pool” on the shore, and the underground water is hot (or boiling 🥵) near the cold ocean!
PS. As you’re always ask why we don’t wear masks here, it’s because there’s no Covid in NZ anymore: after the first lockdown, the country remained closed and we’ve been living normal life. What a privilege!
