More Wellington color

New Zealand, like all good subjects of the Crown, still celebrates Guy Fawkes Day, complete with carnival booths along the waterfront and fireworks over the harbor. It was November 4th back in the States, election day, so for us the fireworks served double duty to celebrate the poll results that we’d watched all day on CNN.

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November.

Around the city, we tried to capture some of the great bits of character we see nearly every day.

Yesterday afternoon we hung out in the waterfront park for a while.

One morning a couple weeks ago, we made it out of bed several hours earlier than usual to catch the sunrise. We watched the sky change colors over the harbor and the moon slide closer to the horizon.
