Day three in Wellington was the beginning of a big adventure. We took the ferry to Matui/Somes Island and hiked all over. On the island we had a great view of the island lighthouse. In the distance, we could see the TV tower we hiked to on our first day.
As we hiked along, Owen spotted a Tuatara.
We all saw a bunch of Kakariki all over the island. This guys was nibbling on something tasty.
There were boxes all over the island that were designated Weta houses. I find Wetas to be rather unsetteling. They remind me of the Jerusalem Crickets that we would see at the wool mill. I didn't like the Jerusalem Crickets either.
After visiting the island, we went over to the Weta workshops to have a look around. I got caught unaware by a troll.
By this time, we were all pretty tired. But after dinner it was suggested that the group go visit Mount Victoria to catch a view of the city at night.
As I looked up, I got a good view of the Southern Cross. In a few more days, I'll be releasing the knit version. But until then, we'll all have to just enjoy this picture.
