Gettin' Out

Yes, I know my blog posts have been stagnant. I should have a very good one for you later this week, however. Since I've been in Wellington for two months now, I decided I ought to take advantage of three days off this week and get out of town a bit. I'm heading up the coast about 40 kms to Paikakariki, on the Kapiti coast. It's a small town with an apparently great beach. Just going to relax a bit, enjoy a few beers and enjoy the sunset over the Tasman Sea. Tomorrow, I am going to Kapiti Island, a Department of Conservation bird sanctuary. Only 50 people are allowed to visit every day--I snagged the last permit. In case you didn't know, NZ is home to a lot of birds not found anywhere else, including some real crazy looking ones. The most famous, of course, is the kiwi. I will have plenty of photos to share when I get back.
