Wellington, New Zealand

After leaving New Plymouth on Tuesday morning we drove to the town of Palmerston North for one night and then drove to Wellington on Wednesday morning.

Wellington is the Capital and a beautiful city with a small town feel. I think the population is somewhere around 175,00 or so.

We stayed at a downtown Motel and spent the day walking around, mostly down along the water.

This first photo here shows the walkway that goes along the coastline and is very popular with walkers and runners. The Te Papa Museum is also shown here. It was a beautiful building, but we didn't actually go inside.

Here are a few more photos we took. There was a lot of cool art and sculptures throughout the City to look at.




This wooden sculpture was part of an overpass walkway that went over the city streets below.
