Day 311, Thursday 28 June 2018
I was out with a group of Ulyssians today, but we weren’t on motorcycles, so the distance recorded below is just a quick trip around the block after I got home.
On the last Thursday of each month, interested people from both North Harbour and Auckland branches of Ulysses go to a garden, art gallery or other interesting event. It’s a change from the usual focus on motorcycles, and a chance for those spouses who don’t ride with us to meet each other.
Today we went to Sculptureum, an art gallery and garden near Matakana. We spent almost two hours wandering through the largest garden, which was named “Garden of Creative Diversity”, which had a huge collection of sculptures in several very different garden settings. After lunch at a nearby cafe, we wandered through the six indoor galleries, then two more gardens filled with sculpture for another hour or more. I am most impressed with this place.
Distance travelled: 4 km. Total distance so far: 39,707 km
