Spring is here!

I promise I shall post photos and tales of my time in Melbourne soon - but there's just so many photos to sort through. I think I will wait till the weekend to do it.

Today was a stunner of a day in the weekend, the sun was shining and it was generally fabulous. It just brings a smile to my face.

This weekend is the 70th Anniversary of the NZ Navy (yes! NZ is such a young country our navy is only 70 years old), so a lot of NZ Navy ships are in Wellington Harbour for a celebration day on Sunday. There are also open days for a lot of the ships over the weekend.

Seen as it was such a stunner of a day Rich and I went to check out the warships in the harbour.




We also met this little seal on our walk - isn't it cute!

There's so much blue in these pictures it's gorgeous!
I'm ashamed to say that I had no idea about the NZ Navy (hangs head in shame). Love your Wayfarers and that adorable seal! x

@Cosmis - Yes! Its spring:D I live in the Southern Hemisphere.

@Vix - Don't feel bad about not knowing NZ had a navy, all of our armed services are on a pretty small scale.

@Cb - The ships are open to the public at the weekend :D

@Helga - All sailors SHOULD dance like Gene Kelly!

@Sadie - The weather has been so stunning. Too nice to be in an office building all day!

@Lindsay - I know he is SERIOUSLY cute, they come into the harbour from time to time. Sometimes penguins do as well:)
