There are little and bigger fish in the shallows of Chaffers Marina, round near Te Papa. There are lots of starfish and some of them glide very slowly over the sea floor if you watch long enough. Evidentally they don’t mind the taste of diesel.

    actually, diesel has a loverly tang to it. Quite savoury in flavour.

    actually I’ve ofteh thought, and been thankful for, how clean Wellington habour water is.

  4. yeah i thought the same thing today. name one other harbour capital city in the western world that you can swim in. exactly

    most capital cities dont even have a harbour!

  5. Deb says:

    Every capital city in Australia (except the one I live in) has a harbour, and you can swim and dive in all of them.

  6. Hans says:

    Australia only has one capital, Canberra. And that has no harbour at all. State capitals do not count especially when they have such fantastic, clean harbours as Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney amd Perth, not fair at all.

  7. Deb says:

    Canberra is a funny little place where pornography and maurijuana are legal. Clearly, having a harbour would improve things.

  8. Tim Sterne says:

    so actualy, wellington isn’t all that great after all.

  9. ACTUALLY, Wellington’s harbour flushes itself out once a day like an enormous toilet bowl that is timed to flush itself continuously over a period of roughly 24 hours. That’s why it can rain for goodness knows how long and the river can pour all sorts of crap into it, but two days later it’s all gone.

    The water pressure that must go past Barrets Reef scares me. (Barrets? Correct my geography if I’m wrong.)

  10. you’re on DBMcC.
    and that’s why surfies are hardout

  11. Heh heh. Yes… ‘surfie’…… I only do it recreationally, and I never inhale.
