Exiting The Ferry In Darkness But With Christmas Cheer…

Family Kiwidutch dock in Wellington after a long drive to Picton and a three and a half hour journey on one of the Cook Straight ferries. It’s dark and we still have at least forty minutes to drive. Our destination is Wainuiomata, a suburb of Lower Hutt. To get there we need to drive up the coast and over a very large hill. The last leg of this journey is always the best because we will have the warmest of welcomes from wonderful friends at the end.

I wonder how many times this campervan has been pulled over by police for a “random” check?

First onto the ferry, but last off…

I am delighted to see that this worker has gotten into the Christmas Spirit,  he has literally lit up his hard hat like a Christmas tree… he waved to us as well but sadly those photographs turned out completely fuzzy. He made me smile.

A warehouse type shop, open very late to cater to the ultra last minute Christmas shopper… (or someone who wants to do some DIY during the holiday week ahead when many shops and businesses close).
