The first photo gives a hint that this year is the year of the rabbit. Quite lovely and beautifully made lanterns in a huge range of colours and shapes.
As for food ... well ... you name it and it was for sale. I was amazed with the range of options and it was all being cooked on the side of the street. Talk about fresh!
Music was good too. The last shot shows a fantastic instrument. The gent must have very long arms to reach all the frets!
All in all a great night out and it was free too.

|Looking towards Auckland City from Bastion Point.|
Even thought the day was pretty overcast we had a great time. Up "One Tree Hill" to enjoy the views across both harbours, check out the old buildings and wonderfully landscaped parkland. Cornwall Park is a real gem in Auckland's jewelry of treasures.
After "One Tree Hill" we headed towards Mission Bay for Fish'n Chips at the Fish Pot Cafe, stopping off at Bastion Point on the way. As always the fish was superb at Fish Pot Cafe!
A trip on the harbour, a walk around the viaduct and a sunset stroll on a western beach ended what was a wonderful day with old friends. I'll end this post with a few more shots.
