We go to Scouts

The children in our host family all go to scouts, Keas (named for an alpine parrot native to New Zealand) is for children 6 to 8 years old, Cubs is for children 8 to 11 years old, and Scouts for children 11 to 14. Scouting is very popular in New Zealand.

The Scout Den that we visited is located at the top of the Wellington Botanical Gardens. It is a small hut built about a hundred years ago. 

From the Scout Den the view over the city and harbour is breathtaking.  On a windy day we would really have to hang on, but today it was gorgeous and clear and still.  Perfect!
