It’s time for Family Kiwidutch, back in 2013, to leave Wellington and head back to the South Island.
On our last morning the low cloud partially lifted and a few streaks of sunshine sneaked in. Coming over the hill from Wainuiomata towards Lower Hutt, we suddenly spy a rainbow, or at least the end of one.
It looks like the “pot of gold” should just be around the next corner further down the hill, unfortunately when we got around the corner the rainbow was gone, so no gold for us on this occasion.
We make our way from Lower Hutt to Wellington and branch off when we see signs for the Ferry Terminal area.
Waiting in the queue to drive the car on board, I photograph the rain falling on the far side of the harbour, the wheeling sea gulls a sign that there was still some rough weather further out in the harbour and out to sea.
It’s dramatic and photogenic weather so I click off some photographs before it is time to board. I know that I took a LOT more photographs even on this fairly short trip but somehow I have completely misplaced them, so you have the very short version. Later, once on board the InterIslander we passed the time looking at the sea and the changing scenery as we left Wellington Harbour behind, crossed the Cook Straight, entered the Marlborough Sounds and then docked at Picton.
