Scenes from the honeymoon part III

From Nelson to Picton to Wellington (by ferry!)
To say we loved Wellington is an understatement.
A city that is quiet and yet vibrant.
Old and modern.
Homemade and wholesome.
It was a perfect transition from country still to the raging metropolis that we live in.


  1. I have to say, I think that photo number three is the best picture of you making art I've ever seen! I want to see it as your header!

    Loving these pictures, I am so glad to see where you've been, for I know the happiness to where you're going...

    : )

  2. Congratulations on your marriage! The pictures of your honeymoon are beautiful!

  3. My favourites: that fabulous staircase! And the lane way in what looks to be a nursery, of roses!

    I want to go to New Zealand!

    Did you purloin a sheep by off chance?

  4. Hi Monica from Summer Hill! ...if you're reading this.

  6. Shell, thank you dear friend; it may well end up as a header!

    Julie, thank you for the congratulations, being married is positively brilliant.

    Alice, I had to get a photo of that staircase in our "boutique" hotel, there was a very cool old elevator (with a lattice door you pull across) but we still tried to use the stairs as much as possible.

    Pirate husband,
    do you still have the poem I wrote to you?
