Bolton Street Memorial Park, a walk and the weekend ahead

As I have mentioned many times in this blog before, one of the pleasures of living where we do is that we can walk to work.  It is such a good way to start the day, and as the seasons change, so what we see changes too.  In a previous blog posts, I have written about Bolton Street Memorial Park which is home to Wellington’s oldest cemetery.  If you like cemeteries, this is a must.  There are lots of things to explore, and I keep coming upon new paths.  On Wednesday, I took a bit of time to go to a part I had not been to before.

There are 1,334 gravestones

This Saturday we are off to the Masterton A & P show (ie agriculture and produce show).  I haven’t been to one for years, and hopefully this should be quite fun, especially if the weather holds.  Full report in the next blog!
