Kaipara Coast

When I was travelling back from Auckland with my five year old grandson a couple of weeks ago I decided to take a stop at the Kaipara Coast Sculpture Garden Centre to give Aiden a change to stretch his legs and for me to try the coffee at the cafe which I haven't visited before.

The coffee was so so but the childrens play area was excellent.  I was ready to move on long before Aiden was which gave me a chance to wander around the plants.  The staff in the cafe were lovely saying he'd be fine there by himself and they would keep an eye on him for me.  

There's a sculpture trail at the centre.  I will call in sometime when I have time for the 1 km walk. The artwork on the gates and fences give an indication of what to expect.                       



I'll come back to link to Theresa's Good Fences.
