Wellington Anniversary Weekend

Well our anniversary at least…. number 18 ( I had to use a calculator to work this out once Ange reminded me of the year).  We headed down on Friday to the Capital smoke for a wedding and a well deserved break.  After almost a year and half of regular weekly visits it was great to finally have the chance to show Ange around the windy city.  It was a friggin fantastic…  every element (including the weather and even Ben's skirt) seem to click into place perfectly.

Our Agenda included:
  • Friday Tapas at Havana Cafe.. a classic Wellington must do.
  • Followed by desert and cocktails at The Library (bar)
  • A dance or two at bogie wonderland
  • Great complimetary breakfast to kick off Saturday at Rydges
  • Obligatory coffee at Smith the Grocer
  • Cable Car ride and walk around botanical gardens
  • Shopping at Kilcardie and Stains (I survived thanks to the new Air New Zealand luggage restrictions)
  • A great bike ride around waterfront
  • THE BIG EVENT: Wedding of the lovely Kat to that mongrel Ben
  • Sunday breakfast repeat
  • Bike ride repeat to chill out on Oriental Bay Beach
  • Post wedding gathering with the Irving clan
  • Falling asleep on the flight home  - PRICELESS
It was fantastic..  Wellington is great most of the time but it is a world beater when the weather is good.   Wedding was really cool.. nothing like a boy getting married in dress (see pic below).

I had been a bit nervous about flying as I'm quite vulnerable to illness while my immunity is recovering from the last chemo round.. check out the in-flight mask (gangster - I know).
