There are a lot of fun events happening in Auckland CBD at present, so this morning I caught the train in, and explored.
- 47 giant decorated owls have been placed around Auckland as part of the Big Hoot Trail, I managed to find 14 of the city based owls, and have shown some of my favourites.
- Currently Auckland is a stop over point for the Volvo Ocean Race Fleet as part of their round the world race. I was lucky enough to see the boats in port today, getting prepared to go back on the water for some localised racing this weekend. I was surprised at how small these boats are, especially when you consider the conditions they sail in. This IG page is worth checking out for some close ups of the boats and action and weather shots.
- Finally I went to the Auckland Art Gallery and participated in the Obliteration Room exhibition. Every person who enters the room is given a sheet of coloured dot stickers to place any where - on the walls, floor, furniture. It's bright, and fun, and while I was in there, someone was actually playing the piano.
