It’s a beautiful day in Wellington

It’s a gorgeous day and a great chance for a nice stroll in the sun rather than sitting staring at a screen all day. Escaping work when backs were turned, I jetted up to Kelburn, past the Uni and down towards Bolton St Cemetery and came across the most wonderful thing on Kinross St. An Australian gum was in full flower and had I’m guessing 30 tui eating, swooping, diving and hollering. It was a beautiful thing to watch and the noise was incredible for the 10 mins I spent standing there. I did of course think of how it must be for those living nearby… pretty deafening and distracting stuff!

    Cool!

    This place http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=-41.313286,174.773844&sll=41.310824,174.902344&sspn=46.10767,114.169922&ie=UTF8&ll=-41.314869,174.781258&spn=0.011346,0.027874&t=h&z=16 is similar, except there are about 6 gum trees and more Tuis!

    Cross the car park, then walk up the drive-way on the opposite side (the one on the left, not the right).
