NZ – Auckland Part Deux

– FEBRUARY 23, 2015

We are returning to Auckland to see two main attractions!

FREDDY’S ICE HOUSE

This was a large commercial freezer at the Auckland harbour that had everything inside made entirely of ice.  No joke!  Jill was freezing about 5 minutes in….I just felt like I was back in Saskatchewan.  The ice also felt good on my hip (which is about 80% healed I would guess).  We also each got a free alcoholic beverage served in an ice glass.  A very “cool” experience.  (see what I did there?)

AUCKLAND ART GALLERY

A free art gallery that had some wacky exhibits.  For example:

Human-scale bubble art. Yup.

But then this caught my eye.  PHSA is doing a fund raiser with a Lego bridge at their offices.  The art gallery had this large Lego display out so the public could play with the pieces and make interesting stuff to challenge their creative skills.  Very cool indeed.

Lego projects for the public to work on to develop their creative skills! PHSA is on to something with that bridge project!

Am I the only one who thinks this looks like Chucky from Child's Play?

A nice art gallery…but we can’t show everything on this blog.  More pics to come on our flickr account soon (I am bugging Jill to get going on that!).
