Rock scrambling in Wellington with Monsieur Cocoa

Wellington’s coastline is a rugged one, with a mix terrain of beaches, from sandy to pebbled and everything in between. There are well known bays and others so small they have no mapped name, but are undoubtedly given names with affection by locals.

This past week we’ve taken a few strolls from our home to some of the local spots on the south coast. It’s been fun to scramble on the rocks, with our dog ‘Monsieur Cocoa’, and explore the sea treasures washed up with the tide.

Rock scrambling with CocoaOur oldest daughter has recently become interested in geocaching, which gives her a fun incentive to get out for a walk with a friend and find treasures of a varied kind! She’s so enthusiastic about her new found hobby that she’s planning a trip to our holiday pad in Martinborough to spend a weekend doing it!

She’s discovered a few geocaches around our Wellington home already – and had fun taking her youngest sister to find one.

It was quite a windy day, so Monsieur Cocoa was staying close to our youngest; making sure she wasn’t whipped off a rock into the sea!

I love the way he circles around her and stays protectively close as she scrambles across the rocks, from one rock pool to the next.
