Salamanca Market and Mt. Wellington

Still windy this morning but as we are staying at the Showgrounds we were able to catch the bus into the city rather than take the vehicles. A very kind Taswegian lady guided us through the CBD to the market, pointing out the important landmarks we needed to know along the way. We hit the markets with high expectations but didn’t realise how busy it would be. The Arcadia Cruise Liner was in town so that helped swamp the place. We spent a couple of hours there before boarding the Big Red Bus Hop On Hop Off city tour.

We disembarked at the Tourist Information Centre, then had fish and chips at Station Pier before boarding a Mt Wellington Tour bus. Very informative and a perfect day to visit the summit of Mount Wellington. Sunny with a relatively gentle breeze we spent almost an hour at the summit before heading down to “The Springs” where we enjoyed a hot cup party and a bite to eat.
