Wednesday we were in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. We hoped to meet up with Anna, a former student and daughter of fellow staff members at Woodstock. We took the shuttle into town from the ship in the morning to check things out. There was an extensive visitors’ center and that was the first bus stop. We checked out the area and returned to the ship. In the afternoon when Anna got off work, she was able to come into the city and meet us at the centre. We didn’t have long together, but it was fun to chat and catch up with her. Her 10-year-old daughter Bella was with her.
This is a major port for shipping lumber overseas. I was able to get a photo of some of the logs piled up. On the right side of the photo is a huge sports stadium.
Our room stewards have developed their animal-creation skills quite well. Here are the chick and bunny we had on Tuesday night and a threesome we found tonight. The pictures below are not in order, as this internet is slow!
