Hilary Barry is enjoying her new found freedom - even in the rain.
The former TV3 presenter has told her followers that she's decided to start "loving the little things". In a video posted to her Facebook page she is seen spinning around, wrapped in a blue raincoat, on Pakiri Beach, north of Auckland.
"There are those who feel the rain and then there are those who just get wet," Barry says in the video. "Feel the rain!"
Along with the video Barry wrote: "I'm loving the little things in life right now - like walking Pakiri Beach today in the pouring rain.
Credit to Bob Dylan/Roger Miller for the quote which I've always loved and loved living by."
The video comes after Barry left MediaWorks late last month after 23 years of working for the company.
Before her final sign off from Newshub the presenter took a serious tone in a Facebook post this afternoon that thanked "every single person who tuned in".
