hello spring

I'm happy to report that Spring has definitely sprung in Auckland. Today we took full advantage of the sunshine and a rare Saturday off work for me, and went to check out a wonderful French market in the pretty Parnell district. There we sampled a whole range of delicious Gallic food and had some tasty lunch.

Then it was onto The Domain- a huge park with some beautiful gardens and walks and a huge museum set in the middle of it on top of a hill. We decided to save the museum for a rainy afternoon, but instead discovered a beautiful Winter Garden inside an old building with the tallest glass roof, filled to the brim with amazing flowers in every colour of the rainbow. We also loved the fern garden with it's tropical atmosphere and Lila's highlight of the day was definitely the ice cream and the chance to ride her little scooter along all the pathways in the park at breakneck speed.

I love New Zealand in the spring - it's fantastic! And I love Parnell as well - spent many a happy Saturday browsing the shops and stopping for coffee when I lived there briefly a few years back.
Glad you're enjoying life over there!
