The Fog Has Lifted

This morning, thick fog moved in from the Manukau Harbour, playing havoc with airline schedules, lifting and reappearing again. Here the view from the walkway between Grendon and Landing Roads as the situation cleared.

Pictures at an Exhibition

The Peg Parade

The Peg Parade

An exhibition opened on Saturday morning at the Upstairs Gallery, Lopdell House, Titirangi. We were on our way up to the rooftop terrace when we got caught in the crowd on the first floor – and squeezed in as well. A crowd of children and parents, young and old, engrossed in hundreds of exhibits, entitled “The Peg Parade”.

300 wooden pegs were handed out to children at local schools and kindergartens, with the brief to turn them into characters of their choice. Such was the echo of the community that adults also wanted to take part in the action. In the end, a total of 244 exhibits graced the walls.

In support of the children’s charity KidsCan.

For just a brief moment he looked up from examining the beans on the cooling tray: I had slowed down by the roasting window at the Deco Eatery, Titirangi, taking in the aroma and the action.

Morning at Tangiwai Reserve

Tangiwai Reserve

Tangiwai Reserve

Tangiwai Reserve is popular with dog owners, as it is is an “off lead” area. Wet grass after a crisp night, and quite soggy in places. Stately trees — their shadows on the lush grass caught my eye.
