By 7.30am I'm up and by 8 out the door - first stop, you guessed it McDonalds Café for a morning coffee, but gave my good neighbours a good morning wave as I left the house nicely dressed, got a pleasant wave back as always
Soon after it was a visit to the Auckland Art Gallery, spoke to quite a few of the staff there, they have some art students who help out in the galleries, and some are quite cute.
TODAY is a great day
Afterwards it was time to visit the Auckland Museum to see what was new, found a natural photography display with lots of award winning images, fell in love with one showing the Northern lights over a glacial pond with stars in the background and reflected in the pond.
I took a few photos for you on this winters day.
and also in the gardens there.
Just wanted an excuse to show of my new pink bra
This is true freedom
