Wellington, very Cosmopolitan.
Skyscrapers everywhere, in the CBD.
Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me, so I can't show you the best fruit and vege around.
Bins of Celeriac, Big fat bulbs of Fennel... beautiful Leeks grown especially for them in Otaki. Divine
Everywhere you look. Fresh colourful and Fabulous.
Everything you could possibly want to buy.
Then, there is this really innovative wrapping procedure.
Buy your fresh fish, they wrap it in this wonderful foil bag.
They seal it and you can just pop it in your fridge... will keep your fish fresh for a couple of days. They will even garnish it for you, with herbs to match the 'breed' of fish
Another reason I'm sorry I didn't take the camera, it was dead calm yesterday.
There was even a wee person, doing the stand up paddle on the board thing, in the Harbour, which seems to be very in, these days. And you need flat calm for that.
Yachts were becalmed...floating on gin.
This morning, quite a different kettle of fish.
We get a glimpse of the Harbour from our friend's apartment.
But it is sunny.
We also got a look at The Roxy Cinema in Miramar.
Peter Jackson and Friends have turned this old cinema into an Art Deco delight.
It is an absolute delight. Check it out here
