Wellington - Day 2

A lazy morning for us on February 8...we didn't get out and about until Noon. But we had a good day of sightseeing and yes, more hiking. We walked past this display as we headed toward Mt. Victoria lookout.

We finally found a hobbit hole

The hike was thankfully only 30 minutes but there were plenty of steep hills!

Again, I don't feel like this picture captures how steep these hills really are

A great view as our reward

We then took the Wellington Cable Car to the Botanic Garden
