a day about town

Well, hi there. It’s been a while since we’ve talked! Life has been pretty much work, work, work lately; I’ve been keeping to a rather predictable routine. I find myself particularly uninspired when all the hours of daylight must be spent inside an office. Not that it is a bad place, this office; it’s got plenty of natural light and a good atmosphere, and some mighty fine people. But I am noticing a bit more light each day now that we are past the winter solstice, and this is a welcome change.

The trees are already budding and blooming…man, winter seems short here in Wellington…basically three months of cold and wet.

The three of us went for a walk last weekend and I thought you might like to see some things that caught our eye(s).

Two of my favorite people, next to one of my favorite colorful buildings that I pass on the daily walk to work:

The view from the top of Mt Victoria (it was a bit of a grey chilly winter day):

The suburb of Mt. Victoria:

Looking through the suburb of Oriental Bay, across Wellington Harbour toward the ferry terminal and cargo terminal:

How to construct a garage in Wellington: build a box, prop it up on stilts, and hope it doesn’t blow away:

Old Victorian houses (on the second photo – don’t you think the little window boxes in between the houses are odd!):

A bit of ye olde England in the midst of the city:
