Spring is sprung…




Wellington, New Zealand

After leaving Manitoba’s first dump of snow last weekend, Ev and I have relished Wellington’s warm (if windy) spring weather over the past days. Our activities have been both culturally voyeuristic and touristic… highlights have included lengthy walks about town (Cuba Street is great!), an extended visit to Te Papa (“Our Place” in Maori, New Zealand’s national museum), taking in the Leonardo da Vinci Machines Exhibition at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Art (60 working wooden models of da Vinci’s inventions, faithfully created from his drawings), visiting various other galleries, and attending an art opening with artist/designer/filmmaker Neil Pardington and his architect wife Amelia.
