It is officially summer in New Zealand but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is going to be really warm. I was out on the south coast of Wellington and spotted these revellers making the most of the milder weather. It was about 19ºC that day and overcast. Due to our temperate climate and being quite far south, the waters around Wellington can still be quite chilly in summer, though one would not realise that watching these people jumping into the sea over and over again!
