Amazing sculture in Cathedral Square
the Cathedral hasn't had any repairs started yet as agreement can't be reached on what they are going to do...seems sad seeing it there in ruins with weeds growing through it.
hubby watched a chess game in the square...then had to tidy the pieces up...road work cone was replacing a missing piece.
there is a lot of wonderful street art thru the city centre, hope to get some more photos.
part of the city being re built.
beautiful old building being supported until it is fixed
this water wheel ran a flour mill back in the 1800's and made all the flour the city needed, the factory building was on the tiny island behind the wheel. When it closed down the women of the city decided to plant the island so it wasn't such an eye sore.
the colourful end of the transitional cathedral made with cardboard rolls..had an earthquake foundation and shoild with stand any other earthquake. Was designed and made by a Japanese man.
Looking to the front of the cathedral, it seems small but holds 750 people.
there was a display going jnto the cathedral for the weekend, all around the walls were these amazing flower costumes made from fabric.
this could be the dahlia family!! Love the colours.
Isn't this so pretty!!
This one is for you Michelle.....after biking in the heat for a few hours we stopped at a cafe by the golf club and I was given tea in this
How pretty is that!!
Hubby has just returned from his walk, need to get organised for another day of exploring.
I did do a little stitching last night before my eyes were too tired!
blogger has decided you need to turn sideways to look at this!!!!
