The Second of the PU’s Arrive + a dear friend

The NZ Guests

The journey continues with the addition of the second half of the PU’s (The Swansons) and our dear friend Leslie. We have spent the last few days exploring Wellington. We have been staying 75 steps above Evan’s Bay (fitting wouldn’t you say) in a lovely home we are rented where we have shared many great meals, laughs, card games and daily excursions. The guys spent one day golfing at Paraparaumu while the ladies spent the day walking along the bay, lunching in the city and browsing the shops. We all visited the farmers market and devoured the Te Papa museum. Today we ventured to Wellington Botanical Gardens and then on to Martinborough for lunch and wine tasting.

Tomorrow we will say good-bye to the McBride crew and our friend Leslie and the Swanson’s will head north for more adventures.
