The weather wasn't brilliant, but we did manage to get out and wander about one day in New Plymouth, as well as visit the galleries. And the Len Lye works are stunning!
We also had a wander around the Taranaki Cathedral Church of St Mary in New Plymouth. I have always admired the clarity of colour in church stained glass windows and how ornate their altars can be:
But what also struck me in St Mary's were the military memorials. I found the Euro-centric view of the conflict with local Maori disconcerting, and accentuated by the token references to Maori who died.
