Yesterday at Island Bay, on the south coast. My son Josh had to do some site research for his next arcitecture project ... normally the sea would be crashing in ... maybe our regional moniker should be changed to Windless Wellington !!
The bright white blob on the horizon to the right of the island is the Interislander ferry on its way to Picton ( double click on the image to open it up for a better view) ... and on the skyline in the haze,to the centre right you will just be able to pick out two of the higher mountains at the top of the South Island.
The image is deliberately not zoomed ... so that you can see the foreshore and demonstrate that you can in fact see the South Island when standing on the South coast of Wellington.
