I grew up in Island Bay, and I still go to Island Bay Medical Centre, so on Tuesday popped over to get a Hepatitis A shot.
This is the main road, The Parade, and the main shopping centre. Island Bay is a fairly long yet skinny suburb. The Parade runs from one end of it to the other for 2 – 3 kms. But almost all of Island Bay is within a few 100 metres of The Parade.
It’s got a good local school, and very good regular buses into town. If I ever settle down and do the family thing, I could well move back to Island Bay. It was a great place to grow up with lots of parks (well one less after a school was built on on one of them) and the beach.No tag for this post.
