BBQing the Bay – West – Wha of Wha

The sun sets on the BBQ wha-part story. I’ve had such fun collating these images and small tales. Many thanks to the people out and about in nature and cooking up a storm.

Without further ado, the grande finale – is West best?

You may like to check out the tides and sunset estimates, as the shapes and scents of this peninsula ebb and flow with the waters. I also recommend a stroll before or after your BBQ/picnic along the Otumoetai Foreshore.

Get ya boules out, in Kulim or Memorial Park. What could be more fun?

Kia ora, for joining wild & grace on our gastronomic fire & nature journey. There’s been a bit of an ice-cream theme going on throughout… so then, what’s your favourite ice-cream flavour? Mine’s liquorice, especially from Bethlehem’s Sommerset Cottage (which you can buy in the tub direct – stop it!). I did enjoy lavendar too whilst travelling to Collioure in the South-East of France. But enough about me, what’s your flavourite?

Hope you can join us on our next adventure. Until then, go well.
