Yesterday we went to Rivendell.

Jay on his way to Rivendell

More to the point, we went to the location outside of Wellington where the Rivendell close exteriors were shot. Kaitoke Regional Park. The delightful [info]tyellas showed us about, while she and [info]the_child wore elf attire. (Further photos later when I can more readily upload.)

After lunch at the home of [info]tyellas, we all went to the Weta Cave, and then enjoyed a tour of the Weta design shops. It was quite something.

The day ended with a dinner at the Southern Cross. Lisa Costello, [info]the_child, [info]danjite, [info]khaybee and I were joined by [info]tyellas, her sweetie Richard Self, Sally McLennan and her sweetie Frank Pitt, as well as New Zealand fans June, Kay and Simon.

Today, we drive north...

That's strange. In the movies, Rivendell looks all ethereal and peaceful. In this picture, it looks just like Jay Lake.

I think you are supposed to go south-east from Rivendell. Let us know if you meet a girl-so-fair in the darkest depths of Mordor.

Glad you are having a good time.
