A Sunny Southern Walkway

After a busy Easter break, I was looking forward to an easy day walk with a lovely bunch of people. And Wellington certainly turned on the weather for us!

We started at Oriental Parade, by the pedestrian crossing near Carlton Gore Road.

After some huffing and puffing, we obtained the highest point on our trip – the Mount Victoria lookout.

From there the ambling became easier, and we made our way along to Mount Albert, where I was pleased to see traces of fairies.

Faeries most certainly live here. Photo credit: Aimee.

Over lunch in Houghton Bay, Sophie delighted us all with her extreme travel stories…you’ll have to go on a trip with her to find out more!

We finished up at Shorland Park with a customary ice cream from the corner dairy. A perfect way to end the walk!
