Leisure Sunday

October 17, 2010

Today was a day of leisure as there was a misty rain most of the day, the kind of rain that seems like there’s not much there but adds up quickly.  I walked around the main shopping area of Queens Street, then stumbled onto a movie theatre and caught The Town.  After the movie was over, things cleared up a bit.  But tomorrow I’m geeking out and going to the Shire, taking the tour of Hobbiton from Lord of the Rings!

Bungee jumping is huge in New Zealand, where commercial jumping was born.  This ride is right in the center of town.  Pretty expensive at NZD$40 a person.
