We had a nice day at sea (I'll post ship pictures later) and then stopped at Wellington- the southernmost capital city in the world! We got to connect with our friend Wendy (who we sailed with on our previous Med. Cruise). We did a walking food tour & a ride up the cable car in Wellington.
We loved this statue by the harbor in Wellington,such suffering and surrender...

Some of us had to see if it was anatomically correct.....ahem...

Mocha cappuccino to start our walking food tour

The harbor has bean bag chairs- very nice

Jim's chocolate chip & PB gelato
Bakery at the local market

Does she have utters?

I can't leave them alone for a minute!

New Zealand is voting on a new flag- here are the choices~

Padiddle- called it. (See the VW bug?)

We went to a very hipster cocoa factory and learned how responsible chocolate is made. And it was wonderful.

Then we hooked up with our friend Wendy and went up the hill on the cable car.

The view was beautiful- see our ship in the background?

Nice cable system

You could see people playing cricket in the field below

It was great to see Wendy. She lives in a beautiful city.
