We had a pretty quiet weekend - after a very tiring week I felt like I needed a break. Plus there was rain - SO MUCH RAIN!
But on Sunday afternoon we did have a chance to get out and about and enjoy the weekend - here's a few photos.
First up we grabbed so sushi for lunch - although we shared a pack of sushi. I'm never sure just how people can eat all eight sushi rolls. I always feel like I'm going to explode after four.
This is the spot where we ate our lunch - civic square, loads of people about enjoying a break in the weather and also so many pigeons and seagulls (as always).
This old vessel is the Hikitea - its pretty old and originally from Scotland (I think). It's a historical vessel and often in the weekends there are volunteers working on board.
There's loads of poetry and prose around the waterfront - I noticed this one for the first time over the weekend and I really liked it.
A new diving platform at Aotea Lagoon on the waterfront - over the summer I'm sure all kinds of crazy people will be jumping off here. The thought of jumping into the harbour makes me feel cold, but LOADS of people do it.
Some more poetry on the waterfront, this time near Te Papa (Museum of New Zealand) - the duck sitting on this stone is basically the grumpiest duck in the world.
Much excitement in the city at the moment as the world premier of the Hobbit is happening on 28 November in Wellington (if you didn't know - the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies were made in Wellington). On Sunday a sculpture was put on top of the Embassy Theatre where the premier is being held. Here's some work men with the sculpture on the back of a truck.
Here's part of the sculpture on the Embassy Theatre - Gandalf outside a hobbit house, the full sculpture is up now so I'm sure you'll see a photo in the future.
Here's a wee caravan on Cuba Street which used to be all pink and girly - now its painted up with a cat that looks like red riding hood.
Just some street art on Cuba Street - I thought it was pretty cute.
Finally a poster for a gig for "Cat and Sock" I just thought the poster was pretty rad.
Hope the start of your week is going well xoxo
