April Adventures. Day 8.

Sadly we have left Paihia and the Bay of Islands. We headed for Auckland. A stay in Auckland is never complete without a visit to the Art Gallery.

Exhibitions included women of the Pacific and Romancing the Collection.

Albert park gave opportunities for sitting in the sun and sketching. These ladies really are on a roll now.

Sketching in the park.

There was other art forms in the park too.

Notice the hat?

At the Black Door Gallery in Parnell we met with Sharron’s friend, artist Terry Prince. He talked about his work that is showcased in the gallery.

Another artist exhibiting in the gallery was Ben Young, who has connections with our home area of Waihi Beach. His sculptures are hand crafted from clear sheet float glass, concrete and steel. Stunning.

The photo does not show its true beauty.
Beautiful depth of colour.

Several other galleries were visited before we headed for our accommodation. This evening we ate at the Vietnamese restaurant Saigonz
