Wellington Harbour has a number of wharves, which all hark back to the early days of the water being the main conduit for supplies and trade. Now, some are used as stop off points for the Harbour ferry but almost always are either populated by people with rods hoping for a catch or are deserted due to the weather.

This is the side wharf at Pt. Howard, close to the Seatoun oil tanks and where fuel ships comes and go from.

The wind was whipping through on this evening and only a few folks with rod clutched in hands where out, all taking care to huddle in the lee of the buildings on the end of the wharf.

At Eastbourne, the wind had no buffer and apart from me no one was contemplating the wharf as a spot to visit. The closest anyone else was to me was a few souls upstairs in the yacht club next door using the Friday evening to share a gin or two and tell stories to one another.
