Hi there. Every February on Waiheke Island, 40 mins by ferry from Auckland city, there is a sculpture walk. There is a bus that takes you from a pavilion near where the ferry lands, to a top point on the island,and returns you again at finish of your walk.
On arrival at the top of the island, you walk down a 3 km track past loads of modern sculptures, and the most beautiful scenery imaginable. You only have to pay a few dollars for the bus ride. And if you've got thousands of dollars you can buy one of the sculptures for your backyard.
Because of my sore foot, I did have a bit of trouble with the downhill bits, but once when I stumbled on a step a gorgeous young man rushed to my aid and I swooned against his chest like some giggly teenage girl.
There was one sculpture that had everybody around me puzzled. It wasnt until I said "The Birds? The movie? Alfred Hitchcock?" that people twigged. It pays to be a movie buff.
Another sculpture was like a giant tree harp that could be played. And yet one more sculpture (behind me in photo) was a sort of large gazebo that was made up entirely of joined-together off-cut scraps of wood. One man I talked to was amazed by this because he said there was no skeleton holding up the scraps of wood. It was such a hot day. About 30c every day I was on Waiheke.
