Our stay in the City
The historic apartment building, Westminster Court is where we are staying for our little sojourn.
Located on Parliament street, which is lined with normally leafy oak trees, but with it been winter the trees are bare. We found this apartment via Air Bnb which is a good way to find a home away from home.
The gorgeous grand old Art Deco place was built in the 1930's and upon entering the apartment you are transported back with the decor and retreat to how life may have been back in the day.
With big old sofas, stained lead light windows and even an old bakerlite phone that is connected and rings in the hallway.
We are loving City life and makes such a change from living on our quiet little Island. It is just a short walk down to the supermarket and the bustling streets of Auckland.
DD and I have been able to catch up for morning coffee on Saturday, lunch's and go shopping together which is great. We have been for long walks and have taken many photos around our beautiful City of Auckland, and will share them with you soon.
Kitchen is coming along and yesterday we bought the subway tiles to line the walls behind the sink and the oven.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods and that you are enjoying the weekend.
Wishing you a happy new week ahead.
