Had a great weekend, spent Saturday on the beach just off Oriental Parade. It's great being able to sit on a beach just minutes away from the city centre, and it's only about a 15 minute walk from my hostel.

Sunday the weather was great again, so I decided to quickly go shopping and bought a jacket for only $50!! Bargain. Once this was purchased, I decided to do a little bit of sightseeing, and went up the cable car to the Botanical Gardens, and a great view over the city. The botanical gardens are really nice, and you can mosey on through them back into the city, which I did. It'll be even nicer here in summer when the rose garden is all in bloom I reckon. The weather was great on Sunday, so after heading back into town - a route this time avoiding the shops) I decided to walk up to the lookout on Mt Victoria. The walk up to the Mt is where they shot the bit in the first Lord of the Rings film where the hobbits have to get off the road, and Frodo has his first encounter with a ringwraith, cool eh! The view from the top of Mount Vic is awesome, you can see all of Wellington, and it gives an idea of how small the city is.
