Yesterday my man and I went on a bit of a road trip to Wellington. He had sold his small ute to a bloke from the south island, and since he was glad to sell it so quickly, we offered to drive it to the ferry as part of the deal. I decided to come with him, so we would have a few hours sightseeing there together.

|A lovely building in Newtown with cabbage trees in front.|
|Are they gossiping about the crowd in front of the button stall?|
I arrived about 11 in the morning, it was still pretty busy, how odd to be in a room with so many hoarders and fabric-a-holics. It was lovely!! I got tempted a lot, but only bought 2 pieces. I will show you tomorrow what they look like and 1 of them is a super find!
|My favourite stall from Unearthed of Tinakori rd.|
How many kids' clothes can I make with it? (more later)
|Little kiwiana shops; the power lines, the verandahs, the colours and the 4 square.|
|Is that hot air rising ?|
|The railway station is from the Victorian era.|
The beehive is built on rubber piles so it moves along with an earthquake.
|Tugboats in the harbour.|

Only 2 more hours to drive from here, and the sun is setting. We had a lovely little trip together, an estimated 680 km round trip . With sunrise, sunset, seaviews and a sprinkling of snow on the mountains, filled sandwiches for lunch and a pizza for dinner. We climbed back up to our hill house to be greeted by our daughter and friends. How lucky we are !
