We need to keep walking fit for our Heaphy Track trek in two weeks.
Come, walk with me.
The tropical houses are home to giant waterlilies and water hyacinth...
cacao trees bearing 'cocoa' pods...
People are playing cricket, having picnics and flying kites.
Nearby are two magnificent Sculptures in the Auckland Domain.
Auckland War Memorial Museum.
Beyond the Domain on Parnell Road the afternoon sun lights up St Mary's and the labyrinth which invites me to walk and to contemplate.
Etched against the blue sky - the roof lines of Holy Trinity Cathedral,
and the Selwyn Library .
