We began with a standing high tea provided by Martha's Pantry. Take a look at the menu so see what we indulged in.

After high tea, we had a tour of Colonial Cottage and gardens. We learned about the Wallis family who built and lived in the cottage upon their arrival in Wellington during the 1830s. Some parts of the cottage have been restored and others seemed to be in the process of refurbishment. Pieces of furniture had been reupholstered and others added to replicate similar period items.
|Not so easy to cook or bake on this stove|
|There's a good reason why I don't iron.|
There's no way I would have even considered it in the 1830s!
