No swimming at Oriental Bay

I've always wanted to swim at Oriental Bay, I don't know why, just have. Sadly the famous Wellington weather has never come right for me on my infrequent visits and that swim has never eventuated. 

I had high hopes on a quick trip to the capital last week but it wasn't to be – I'm not complaining though – because I got to make this sketch between rain showers followed by an excellent breakfast at Beach Babylon.
