I’ve had a busy executive day today and failed to take my camera with me so for the first time in a long time I’m out of photo blogging material. Sharp intake of breath – I know!
I wished I’d had my camera as there were so many things I could have shared with you today about my exploits in Wellington. Here’s 5 of the potential sights you could have seen, if only……
- An umbrella graveyard by Parliament. There were no less than 3 broken down, crumpled, done in, really had it umbrellas. It was quite funny to see them all thrown away in the same place.
- A new pedestrian crossing by the library. It’s been a long time in coming and now makes it a safe place to cross. I know that’s not so profound but I thought it looked shiny new and urban. With the really cool libary building behind it, I think you would have appreciated the beauty of it all.
- A new sushi bar – or rather another branch of the ever so popular Midland Sushi. This is THE place to get your sushi in Wellington. Officionados will queue for up to 20 minutes to get the tastiest, freshest and best value sushi there is. I’ve been in the queue and it’s worth the wait. Now there are two places you can queue to get your sushi lunch!
- A white out across the harbour. The cloud/fog and rain obliterated the view today. Made the traffic go real slow too which was a shame given the traffic is usually moving too quickly for you to admire the view. The one day when you are going slow enough there is no view to be seen.
- My two bassets not taking any chances with their bones this afternoon. After all the initial tail wagging, jumping up and general over excitement they skipped back, grabbed the bones and set off across the lawn. Then stopping – still with bones in mouth – to relieve themselves (house trained and barn trained you know!) and then running on with bones to the back door to be let in for a chew on their big cushion. Foiled at the door. New house policy – outdoors or in the barn only. Boy those things can stink!
So there you have it. If I’d had my camera look what you might have been able to see on the blog today. Instead you can enjoy some pictures of the basset boys. Look how they’ve grown up. Too cute for words eh?
