This morning dawned bright, clear and very, very cold! There was a thin layer of ice on the car's windscreen as we drove to school - the first frost of this late start to winter we are having in Auckland. After dropping the girls at school, Sarah and I headed out past Helensville through Kaukapakapa to the Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens - a 'unique sculpture trail set in a tranquil, rural garden oasis'. More than 60 sculptures by artists from all over New Zealand are on display. It was a perfect day to wander through the beautiful gardens, breathing the fresh clear air and taking in the display. Here is one of my favourites 'Kereru' by Darryl Fagence, created in stainless steel and ruby lustre on glass. The kereru is also known as the New Zealand pigeon.
