Apologies for the lack of posts this week.
Blame it on the weather.
Wellington has been basking in some unprecedented spell of the most glorious weather.
Days on end of not just warm, but hot, sunshine. And perhaps more tellingly, no wind.
I have never seen so many people swimming at Oriental Bay ever.
It's as if we've been transported to a tropical oasis.
Normally, Wellingtonians joke that we don't choose to live in this city for the weather.
We love our little city, but the challenge of standing upright in the wind can be a little wearing at times.
However, we also have another saying - that you can't beat Wellington on a good day.
And I can't help but think that the cruise ships that have been in this week, and the thousands in town this weekend for the huge party that is the rugby sevens are absolutely seeing Wellington on a good day.
Have a lovely weekend!
