Moving On

29 06 2009

Well having spent several relaxing days in Paraparaumu on the Kapiti coast it’s time to move on and switch islands. Tuesday will see me traveling to the South Island where I will be heading for Kaikoura.

Home of whale watching and marine life in abundance and I may even decide to take a swim with the dolphins.

Look out for more pictures coming soon.

I’ve managed to spend a little bit of time sorting and uploading a couple of photo galleries.
Firstly, there’s the Farne Islands photographs, then some of the trip getting here, and finally Wellington and Lord of the Rings tour.

Having spent the weekend in the beautiful Kapiti Coast I’m back in windy Wellington for a couple of days before heading back to Kapiti Coast and a visit to Kapiti Island on Thursday.

Still trying to sort out photos from the last few days and hope to being uploading quite a selection in the next day or two.

Well, it’s been a great day out visiting loads of the film locations and culminating at the Weta Cave. Treated myself to a Weta mug. Have lots of pics to post so lookout for them soon.

Well, my first full day has been great. Taken a stroll around Wellington getting to know the place. Going on a Lord of the Rings tour and visit to the Weta Cave on Friday all being well.

Here’s my view from where I’m staying.

Arrived safe and sound. Well what can I say: it’s cold (4 degrees) and it’s great. Snow capped mountains and stunning views.
