Wellington's weather is extremely mild and we don't really have strong seasons and at the moment the weather is a little more crazy that usual. At the moment you can leave work in beautiful sunshine and return home to rain.
But as Rich always says, if the weather was good all the time in Wellington then everyone would want to live here and we can't have that! It's only the hardy souls that can put up with the less that fabulous weather that remain here.
On the first day of summer my mum and some other family were here from Australia and the weather was alright, it was a kid of overcast day but not really hot or cold.
On the second day the rain set in and it was a bleak and miserable day with really high wind. I guess some people would use that as their queue to spend the rest of the day indoors, watching movies and drinking hot chocolate.
But Rich and I aren't like most people - so first of all we headed out to see the Wellington Underground Markets which are currently open both Saturday and Sunday at the moment in the lead up to Christmas. We grabbed some lunch at the markets and then headed off for a walk along the waterfront. Who says you can't have a fun time in the wind and the rain?
