Wellington color

We’ve taken a bunch of random pictures in Wellington that don’t really fit into any narrative but that we wanted to share. Here’s a handful.

There's a quarter-mile-long sealife mural, with little educational labels and everything, painted on a wall along the Oriental Bay beachfront.

An example of the pedestrian only streets around here -- Becky climbs this one coming home from work. There are people with postal addresses on this street and zero car access to their houses.

The London-based noodle restaurant Wagamama, which Becky was crazy about during her term studying abroad, has expanded to New Zealand. Mmm, noodly goodness.

An Argentine Royal Armada sailing ship is docked in Wellington this week and has been open for tours, so we checked it out. They're on a year-long tour of the world promoting international cooperation and have had guest crew from different countries' navies.

 But little did they know that there was a clandestine pirate in their midst. (Turns out International Talk Like A Pirate Day really is celebrated throughout the world - our housemates threw a party.)
