There were plane spotters at the end of the runway at Sydney. I counted 8, all of whom had cameras set up to take photos of planes as they landed. No one wore an anorak, though; the temp was 25C and climbing rapidly.

The flight was smooth and uneventful -- which is nice -- and I spent my time reading Tom Holt's "Life, Liberty, And The Pursuit Of Sausages" instead of watching the entertainment system. The 2.5 hour flight to Wellington is 1 hour shorter than flying to Perth.

Ad so I picked up my hire car, set up in my hotel room in Kilbirnie, had a really hot cup of tea, and went for a drive to visit Annabel from the Shadow & Flame forums. She lives just down the road from the Weta Workshops, and knows many of the people there.

And so an early night.

Today I will visit the Weta Cave, and then hit the Dr Grordbort's Exceptional Exhibition.
