On Saturday we drove to Devonport where we peeked in the shops, spending some time in the used book store and a quilt shop! Fun for us - not as much for the kids - haha!
|I found a couple NZ prints. The bird fabric has a Tui bird on it - we hear this bird as we wake up every morning.|
|Best plaque ever!|
We also explored the tunnels and battery on North Head that were built starting in 1885 in response to fears of a Russian attack. Here's a great fact sheet if you're interested: North Head fact sheet.
|Pretty sure the peninsula extending the furthest is Musik Point where we were standing a few days earlier.|
|View of Auckland downtown.|
A good place for a photo op; just not in the right mood. So separate groups it is :)
We've seen this a few times. It's called a Red Hot Poker or Torch Lily :)
