5:30am but wait, I have the most expensive earplugs money can buy, what if I put them in my ears?
BLISS! Up around 8:30, something of a sleep in.
Wet this morning in Wellington so no rush, a quite day with some email and a coffee in town seemed to be in order rather than dicing with greasy roads. Took a little tour up Mt Victoria and a lady recommended the view from the Turbine (picture). She was right.
The ferry was slightly late but they had sent me a text message so no unnecessary waiting. Met a lady with a fabulous '91 Ducati, drool. Aparently there's a Ducati rally this weekend in the South Island.
30km to Blenhiem and an excellent steak dinner.
