A cliche but it's true

I'm with the Datsun Violets

You can't beat Wellington on a good day

It's a cliche but it's true (line from same song)

This year, unlike the past two or three, Wellington is having a summer and it is lovely. Weather this weekend has been pretty wonderful,mid 20s (I know Adrian cold where you are), no cloud, no wind and an amazing full moon at night. We have had this weather for 3 consecutive days and the forecast is for another 7. This made national news on Friday -Met Service can't tell us the last time Wellington had 10 consecutive days without cloud or rain.

We have used the weekend well.Tony finished water-blasting and staining the decks yesterday. Today we took Lily up the coast for a beach walk then we had lunch at Raumati. In the picture you can just see Lily who was really, really enjoying swimmin

Tonight we had a bbq with Eleys at their place.

It has felt like a bonus holiday even though for us it is only a 2 day weekend.

If I am right tomorrow both Adrian and Maria are off work, Adrian for Australia Day and Maria for Auckland Anniversary. Hope you both get to enjoy your day off as much as we have enjoyed ours

Tony has added his phone photo of Wellington's Riviera of the South taken this evening. Note the familiar shadow to the bottom right!
