Egg and tie
During the morning I left the boys with Nick and wandered around town. It was a welcome break to get out the house by myself - just to be entirely alone. Took the boys to the Aigantighe Art Gallery in the afternoon - had been wanting to see what it was all about. They had a special holiday program running for the kids, with questions about the various paintings and artworks to be answered, earning them discount vouchers for the movies. The gallery is set in a beautiful old part of town and was originally built as a retirement house for a couple. Regrettably no photos were permitted in the gallery itself, but we made our way to the sculpture garden outside as well. Across the road from the gallery there is a 5-star B&B for sale, reputed to be one of South Island's finest. Nick's dream home!
