On August 7th, we mostly laid low in Wellington, then went back to Zealandia that evening to see Sirocco the kākāpō.

On August 8th, we hooked up with [info]tyellas to head out to Rivendell, also known as Kaitoke Regional Park. After that we visited the Weta Cave. Then there was an open dinner that evening at Southern Cross.

Haven't looked through everything you've posted here, but the little kiwi sculptures make me think of avocados. Someone should make these out of avocados! And then you could eat them . . .

We actually used to have a public service poster which was a kiwi made up of fruit and vegetables and the body was an avocado. It's kind of an irresistible association, isn't it? And we grow tons of avocados here, which makes it even more alluring.

On that bridge, did you feel like you were in the movie, "Sorcerer?"

Ha, furry hobbit feet! My business partner worked with someone on one of our contracts who moonlighted making them. She said the actors loved them as they were like warm comfy slippers.
