More holiday highlights

I do love staying around Auckland over the Christmas/New Year time. Traffic is quieter and there is chance to explore the places I often don't think about during the year. Two more to share today:

The Botanic Gardens with Sculptures

 The Cascades Walking Track, Waitakeres

The English words on this sign say:
Kauri tree - oh great one
you are father time
both the present and the past,
if you could talk what stories would you tell us
of life as you saw it, perhaps a thousand or more years ago!
You are the father, grandfather 
and ancestor of the forest.
