We recently had a flight to Wellington.
The Captain wanted some good photos of the mountains in the middle of the North Island so we also got some good close shots.
This is Mt Ngaruhoe ( the pointy one ) and Mt Tongariro.
This is Mt Ruapehu - the crater lake is just visible.
We visited the War memorial Exhibition and went down in the Trenches. Very realistic very smelly. ( Peter Jackson Creations.) No cameras or phones or bags allowed so no photos.
Staying at our Hotel were the All Blacks. ( just back from Nelson ) Gosh they are tall when you stand next to them in a lift!
We only bought meals and Books! quite a few books.
