Scorching Bay in the rain –
Some may say it’s not the same –
But for those of us young at heart –
Dancing in the rain is just the start.
In Welly a rainy day, without wind, is special –
It’s a Dr Seuss day of Up for Umbrellas!
But hands free is better –
for playing jump with the waves.
When running in the rain starts to lose its sway –
Even with friends, visiting Welly, on holiday –
There’s a warm cafe, by the name of Scorch-o-Rama,
With friendly staff,
views of the bay,
and toys for the little ones to play.
When the eating and chatting,
puppet shows and rain watching,
have done their dash for the day –
There’s a warm Weta Cave, to get cosy with the Hobbits
(or even the Wot Wots!).
Or maybe have a ‘Jane and the Dragon’ moment with a cape and a shield!
After the battle, it’s time to rest – not tattle,
To retreat homeward, and surrender –
to a meal and a slumber.
Then when we’re revived we set out again –
There’s a damsen to rescue from a day of school!
She’s delighted to see us and had a good day –
for that we are thankful and shout, ‘Hurray!’.
We take her to Moore Wilson’s – to view her artwork…
A masterpiece of mouthwatering delight…
And we take home some scrumptious morsels –
to finish the day, now the rain’s given way.
Perhaps tomorrow will be a sunshine day.
