Hi Dear friends,
Hope you have had a lovely week and now it is the weekend again!
Today just a few random things I snapped photos of around our little Island
The first is this lovely sculpture of the sweet fantail ( the Maori name is Piwakawaka)
We can often see these beautiful little birds flitting around in the bush near our deck - I love watching them as they always seems so happy.
Next is an ambitious wooden architectural sculpture, that was built with the help of a group of Unitec students.
Named the ' Gateway,' this 16 metre long structure resembles a meeting house. The skeletal show stopper is built from more than 250 planks of wood. I like how the view of Rangitoto Island is framed as you look out. With the shimmering sea and the beautiful light it looked amazing and life seemed so very tranquil
Summer in New Zealand seems to come later and later each year and when it does we have had a few sweltering days.
Last Tuesday though we had a whole months rainfall in one day which proved to be a problem for many people, with flooding, and landslips.
Do hope you have a lovely weekend
