This afternoon we fly to Wellington, to meet my brother Cam and his wife Jenny for a few days in their new (about a year old now) house at Otaki Beach, up the Kapiti Coast. We'll return on Monday evening, so we should get most of a day in the city, if we can find somewhere to park our bags.
The flights might be interesting. We're travelling in ATR72 turboprops both ways, and they fly at 4000m approx; just right for the turbulence from today's strong NW winds over the Southern Alps. It could be a bumpy ride up the Canterbury and Marlborough coast.
