Thursday—last day in Wellington

All too soon time has flown and we are nearing the end of our Wellington time. We headed out early to the Wellington Museum which was also within walking distance of our hotel. This features the history of the city, with lots of attention to the 1900’s in a uniquely e walk-around display featuring moments from the years up to 2000. It was quite informative.

There are also some static and operational displays –here’s one that caught my eye. It actually runs!!!

Then we watched the movie and examined the displays around the sinking of The Wahine ferry in the harbour. Then off for some food, which was a big part of our day. We also did some souvenir shopping–NO HINTS–and returned to make sure all fit into our suitcases.

Sarah and Cousin Margaret went out Thursday evening to the Wellington Quilters Guild meeting, while I stayed home for last minute laundry, etc. Then early to bed, because we need to meet the train at 7:15 a.m.
