Today was our first day in Wellington. The bed in this B&B is super comfy, and yet we once again got up at 7:30 as we'd booked the 9:30 tour at the Weta Cave, one part of the Weta Workshop. We saw a great many props including the armour of Sauron (well one of the prop sets, the urethene plastic one not the steel set), we also learned the decision making behind the Witch King's weapon in Return of the King, saw the working Warthog they built for the cancelled Halo movies, and many cool things. No photos due to copyright and in progress projects rules.

After that we went into Wellington proper via bus, even if it turned out later we hadn't bought the bus ticket we thought we had. We rode the cable car up then walked down through the botanical gardens before spending a few hours in the Te Papa museum, seeing a variety of exhibits including the only preserved colossal squid specimen.

Tomorrow we're not entirely sure what we're doing other than having a lie in and probably driving to see some seals in the wild. That and enjoying the fresh loaf of bread, and home made baked treats we get fresh every day at the B&B.
