Almost there. The water was a bit rough

Well, Mick had to go back to work today so after Andrew dropped Claire and Greg at school we said our farewells to Nicki (who also had to go back to work today) and headed off to Wellington. It had been nice spending a few days with friends.  We had an uneventful trip to Wellington but were wondering how hard it would be to find our accomodation. We seemed to find it with out any problems! We had decided to give backpackers accommodation a go. It was an old building, the lift was a bit of a concern, it was basic, our room was very small. There was one of those bunk beds, double at the bottom & single on top and room for nothing else. We did have an ensuite and there was a tv up on the wall of our room. Nowhere to put anything. Wouldn't have minded so much if the bed wasn't so uncomfortable. Wooden slat base with 1 inch   foam mattress!  Oh well never mind. Still think backpackers is great for the younger ones.  We would be returning our rental car tommorrow so we spent the rest of afternoon driving around  Wellington to see the sights. They definately have some interesting carparking for the houses on the side of the hill! We eventually had to go to our uncomfortable bed.
