Another great day in Wellington – cruise ship passengers love our waterfront too

Today I just took a day off and spent about 3 hours on the Wellington Waterfront – it’s no wonder surveys show cruise ship passengers love this working wharf – it has everything. Art, music, galleries, food, shops, cafes, playground — all wrapped around a working wharf, right on the edge of New Zealand’s capital city’s retail and business centre.

Today I explored just a  little of it over lunchtime. As well as going to a fascinating book launch about the Sons of the Soil ( a history of New Zealand Chinese market gardeners) and had  a REALLY great quesadilla for lunch – go and try one – the Mexican food is right beside the new public sculpture “Nga Kina” by the talented Michel Tuffery

I also came across a new community piano – if you have musical skills book a time slot to entertain us — thanks to the Tuatua Cafe et al!
Another thing I came across was a stairway being built — to where? Who knows what it’s for? No-one is telling it seems.

Anyway, here’s a slideshow from the many photos I took today. Sit back, relax and enjoy🙂
