Fine day in Wellington

We had a fine day in Wellington recently [one of the 3 fine days Wellington gets each year :-)]. It started off extremely foggy - so much so that the airport was effectively closed for several hours disrupting thousands of travelers. After the fog cleared it was a fantastic day.

I took 3 people up for a quick flight - north to Petone/Paremata/Mana Island then south down the coastline and in through Island Bay. Needless to say, a great time was had by all. Thanks to Mark for taking the snapshots:

Nice! Looks like you had a great day! What were you flying?

A C172 and only 0.65 [yes, 3 minute charging increments] for the flight. Cheap, easy and fun!

You can see how clear it was with the Kaikoura Ranges in the background!

3 minute increments eh? Their choice i suppose lol!

Yeah it looks like it was a brilliant day!

Makes no difference overall... 6 minute blocks average out anyway.
