Pretty picks for a fun day out in the city

The Dominion Post - - Capital Day -

Ruth Pretty’s holy trin­ity of cater­ing in­cludes im­pec­ca­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion, high qual­ity ser­vice, and great food. But there is no trin­ity when it comes to find­ing places to eat and re­lax in the cap­i­tal, as the city has so much on of­fer. I love the Welling­ton water­front, partly be­cause every inch of it is etched in my mem­ory by an event. There are so many out­stand­ing venues and spa­ces on the water­front. Early morn­ing or evening I walk around our prop­erty do­ing lit­tle gar­den jobs, such as dead head­ing roses or re­mov­ing limp rain­bow chard leaves. This puts my mind in a dif­fer­ent zone. We have a tri­an­gle of pro­tected na­tive bush and if in­spi­ra­tion re­quires peace­ful­ness, I dis­ap­pear into the trees and count na­tive birds.
