As predicted, a long drive to Wellington. 0800 start. 4ºC. Whakapapa looked amazing. Took some photos, hope they look okay.
The drive got a bit tedious after the second hour.
We arrived in Wellington around midday and it's cold,and blustery! If the weather holds tomorrows ferry ride should be interesting.
We had a walk around the wharfs and like and I'll post some of the pics that demonstrate just how cold it was. We could see the beginnings of waves in the marina from the wind!
We are going to clean out the car and get it ready to drop off at the rental office tomorrow before we hop on the ferry.
The accommodation is a bit of a joke but oh well.
