busGreetings loyal readers and fellow maremmas. One of the many reasons why mummy has not been helping Us with our blog is because she took Bashful down to Wellington.  He was supposed to be going with daddy, but mummy didn’t trust those two together, so she decided to go down to join them.  As daddy was already in Wellington, she travelled down on an Intercity bus.  Once, down there mummy and Bashful took in the sights.

 William Trethewey's Kupe Group (1999) was unveiled at this spot in March 2000, but has a long history before this date. The original work titled The Coming of the Māori (1939) greeted visitors at the Centennial Exhibition 1939-40. It stood at the end of a pool, and was constructed of painted plaster. After the Exhibition, the piece was moved to the Wellington Railway Station where it suffered decades of vandalism. In 1986, it was moved to the Wellington Showgrounds and then eventually to Te Papa. The original was cast in bronze in 1999. The piece consists of Kupe Raiatea, the great Maori explorer and discoverer of Wellington harbour, his wife Te Aparangi and tohunga Pekahourangi.
