Last weekend, we were in Auckland for the Wire concert (originally a  seventies UK punk band that has kept on playing and kept on making the albums – they were great).  After a trip to the Auckland Art Gallery and an excellent brunch there, we took a ferry trip and spent Saturday afternoon strolling around sunny Devonport, exploring the bookshops and eating fish burgers and nachos at the Masonic Hotel.  Perfect day.  I was quite taken with the plaque above (in case you can’t read it, it says ‘On this site in 1897 nothing happened’) and the knitted hearts that someone has been sewing around the seats.
