Shhh … James is asleep.
As he continues his recovery from Dengue Fever, catnaps are a big part of the process.
I’ve been using this time as an opportunity to run quick errands to pick up meds, grab a few groceries, and see bits and pieces of Wellington. Each day I take a different route, and I’ve got to tell you, I’m so impressed. It’s such a welcoming city.
Wellington is situated on a beautiful natural bay, cradled and embraced by green hills. It doesn’t get much more picturesque than this.
And the architecture is right up my alley – eclectic!
Modern, industrial condos (the view from our 6th floor apartment window) …
… sit next to restored Victorian cottages.
Wacky backpacker hostels …
… rub elbows with a Deco Arts Center.
Architectural elements add interesting flair …
… while public sculptures, both traditional and contemporary, share touches of whimsy.
Where Māori traditional tribal boundary markers can coexist with New Zealand’s modern-day Parliament building …
… and Burger King (NOT Hungry Jack’s here) can snare a classic revival building on a prime corner.
Last, but not least, you’ve got to love a city where the Railway Station …
… is located on Bunny Street. I love this place!
Peace and Love,
P.S. James says thanks for all the well wishes. He’s still feeling pretty rough, and his full-body rash is starting to itch … scratch, scratch! He hopes to be on the mend and back on the blogging trail soon.
