Country Kids go to Brick Bay Vineyard Sculpture Trail!

Less than an hour’s drive north of New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland, is a stunning sculpture trail at the Brick Bay Vineyard. Nature and art combine to make a beautiful and fascinating walk.

The sculptures entranced even the youngest of our tribe, Miss 3 – Alice, so that she happily walked most of the two kilometre trail.

The older children ran along, leading the way, excited to discover the next sculpture.

Whilst Dan and I strolled quietly behind, at Miss 3’s stop / start pace, pretending to be sculptures and watching the fan-tails flitting in and out of the beautiful native bush.

Of course there was the mandatory pose for a photo too!

It was a wonderful walk – just a shame we couldn’t linger for a wine and lunch after… but it wouldn’t have been that sedate with our mob 😉 and Miss 3 was ready for a nap anyway. However, the menu looked rather scrumptious and child friendly… maybe next time – or we’ll pack a picnic at least!

What’s more, we had the most wonderful company of dear friends who’d moved up to ‘the winterless north’ a few years ago – after residing in Wellington for a couple of years.
