Wellington, New Zealand

March 5, 2016

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and is a lovely city.  We walked from the ship along the waterfront to the TePapa Museum and found some gifts for our family.  We saw some very nice displays and left just as it was getting busy.   Back along the waterfront we saw local Dragon Boat Clubs having races and the wharf was full of families having a great Saturday.
