Dad spent the few days before driving Mum and various other people slightly insane trying to guess where he was being taken. Saturday morning he still had no idea.I had a limited amount of petrol in my car, so Dad actually drove us all in to Wellington...and he still had no idea. It wasn't until we got him sitting on the boat that he worked out we were taking him to Somes Island.

It was an amazing day.
Today we're taking Dad to see Tangled, before it's not on in the cinema anymore! It's down to two screenings a week!
