What an exciting weekend I had! Saturday was the first monthly trip with my study abroad program. We went to Weta Cave, which is the small museum/gift shop of Weta Digital. Weta Digital is the film company that made, among other movies, the Lord of the Rings series! We got to see a bunch of replicas of characters and objects from movies, as well as a short film about the digital process of creating the characters and scenery.
On Sunday, after going to the farmers market by the water to get our fruits and vegetables for the week, a group of my friends and I took the bus out to Island Bay to do a walk by the water and get to what is known as "red rocks." This walk took us about four hours total to go out and back, although that included lots of stopping to take pictures of the beautiful landscape and the main attraction, seals!
