There is a Wi-fi here in Kaikoura so here goes!
Yesterday we took the cable car up to the observatory in Wellington and the botanical gardens. Wellington is indeed a beautiful city and we hardly scratched the surface.
The cable car remained largely unchanged until 1978 when it was replaced with the current Swiss design, a hybrid cable car and funicular. We then had a look round the Te Papa museum which is a superb building and FREE!
Mary was still after that ultimate flower picture. Then after lunch Keith arrived and off we went on a visual tour chauffeured tour.
We finished up at his house and Malcolm is going to have to work hard on that figure as Keith has a few years on him and looks in much better shape! A lovely Thai meal rounded off just a perfect day. The toe is better thanks to nurse Treen and thanks to all of you who were keen to know how it was progressing.
We bade farewell last night to the harbour view and this morning we headed for the ferry. 600 cars on board, this was no small ship! The crossing was a little dull but wonderfully calm.
Tomorrow we swim with the Dolphins! Now that might be very amusing. Have you ever seen Malcolm in a wet suit? Sorry not a pleasant image to leave you with. Please don’t have nightmares and thank you for reading. M & M
