Most Scenic Playground in the World

We went to the playground today but not the usual place where we go over at Nairnville. This time Mrs R suggested the park just down the road that was recently cleaned up. I'd never been there and had no idea what a treat it would be on such a beautiful Wellington day.

I'm fairly sure that this has to be the most scenic playground in the world. The kids ignored the view but the bench pictured below is perfectly positioned to watch the harbour. You could even enjoy the view as you bounce up and down on the see-saw.

Being a nervous parent, we kept the ball games away from the rather unsettling cliff edge; not sure whether it is too smart to build a playground on top of a cliff and not put up a barrier of sorts but the views sure are great.....

Tana Umaga says Goodbye to the Hurricanes

I'm not gonna mention the game except to say it was a good crowd and a great farewell to Tana.

Also, it was the last game for Lome Fa'atau who is still electric when (if) he gets the ball.

Miss R came along too and also waved goodbye to Tana, something to tell the grandkids; he is one of the greats.
