This is the side of the Art Vault I sketched Here rather less formal than the main facade and with an attractive balcony. The structure below is a public toilet on a small green space that has a war memorial. New Zealand is very good at providing clean, accessible toilets, even on the more popular trails.
Very changeable weather this week as winter approaches. We went for a quick beach visit earlier but it was very chilly when the sun went in. The beaches are stupendous and practically deserted so always rejuvenating.
It’s beginning to dawn on me that being on the other side of the world, we won’t see a summer this year.
The verandah is very fine, as are the windows
Summer will hang on to greet you here.
