A spoonful of Canadiana

It’s labour day weekend over here and what a glorious weekend it has been! For the last 48 hours, I have been catching up and cruising this grand city with one of my oldest and dearest friends - Courtney Wotherspoon!

We had to make the most of the 48 hours we had available and so we immediately headed to a nearby pub for a few. Man, it was great to see her smiling face! Lots of catching up on the homefront and showing off this fantastic city to her! The weekend was filled with superb brunches, a tour of Te Papa (and a few shops to Pete’s great delight!) and several bevvie bars where we were able to quench our many thirsts throughout each afternoon.

Cool structures outside Te Papa

With the World Cup. "Touristy"? Yes. But the pics were free!

An afternoon of brewskies and scrabble

Mac's brewery (like a 50's living room)

On the second evening, we caught the NZ vs. England rugby match at the stadium. Great times and awesome atmosphere. Oh ya – and the game was great too (NZ crushed England)!

Excited for the game!

No I'm not giving the finger - I'm holding the bottle cap! :P

Kiwis score!

The waterboy (aka rehydration facilitator - the dude in yellow) takes his job very seriously!

The two days absolutely flew by but it was so great to see a friendly face from home.

Miss you already Court!!!
