Woke this morning to grey skies and drizzle, a good day to stay inside, but you do what you have to do while on holiday. Thankfully a very helpful lady at iSite (Tourism Office) managed to find us two tickets to the Weta Basic Studio tour, which we were very happy to have. We drove straight over to Miramar and the Studio Tour. Fabulous, no photos were allowed during most of the tour (Copyright and Licensing restrictions and all that), but I did not mind, we could take photos at the end (on my phone), I was so busy looking at everything, from props and costumes, giant models and such I completely forgot about the free mini movie about Weta Studio – oh well, I was over the moon with what we got to see, really interesting. Perhaps that is another reason to come back again!
We had Lunch back in Wellington and watched more rain and gusty winds, so we decided to make the most of an opportunity, the Chinese Terracotta Warriors Exhibition was in town – great exhibit and we did not have as much trouble getting tickets. 🙂
We then drove along the coast to Point Halswell Lighthouse, still cloudy, grey and a little drizzle…
By that time the rain had cleared a little so we spent some time wandering around town, Parliament House and such.
Off to find Dinner and then headed out to Oriental Bay for Sunset, the skies had cleared a little and the promise of sunset was at hand, cold but spectacular. We decided to risk Mount Victoria again, after rugging up to catch some city lights again, so windy and the clouds closed in again.
