The weather here at the moment is really changeable at the moment - we either have bleak stormy days or glorious sunshine!
Last Sunday was one of the days of glorious sunshine! So Rich and I decided to walk up to Brooklyn via Central Park.
But there was evidence of stormy times around - the original path we tried to walk along didn't work out for us. The bridge crossed the stream had been all smashed up by a tree that had fallen in recent stormy times.
So we had to retrace our steps and then walk up these stairs - but its ok, we live in Wellington - hills and stairs are everywhere.
Then before we knew it - we were in Brooklyn! It's a cute little suburb, I'd really love to live here one day. Plus I could wouldn't have to do as many squats at the gym if I had to walk up the Brooklyn Hill every day.
There is a wind turbine in Brooklyn - so they have these cute wind turbine tiles along the footpath.
The old fire station facade still remains standing next to the new fire station building (which is much less interesting).
Also we made a kitty friend - he's actually staring at a cat on the other side of the road. Yes we are both allergic to cats and shouldn't be petting strange cats whilst out walking. But he was so friendly and adorable.
We decided to keep walking to a monument up on another hill that looks down on Brooklyn - we weren't sure what it was a monument for, but it turns out its for the fallen soldiers of World War I.
Did I mention its totally awesome that Rich has taken a break from study over the summer so we can hang out at the weekend? Because it is!
Hope you all have had a super week.
