We had every intention of visiting Wharariki Beach, weather regardless. We were lucky it wasn't pissing down, but unlucky it was blowing-its-tits-off. I think sand permeated everything, including my camera... eek.
To be fair, I don't think its often that it isn't windy at Wharariki, its probably one of the most exposed places in New Zealand. Check the map to see where this was taken.
