Harbour Art #6
Well, almost 'harbour art'. This whale is on a garage door in Sumner and it always makes me smile :-) I see it every time I visit the chocolate shop (Chocoblitz) at the far end of Nayland Street. I used to go there to buy chocolates for my Auntie Margaret and to chat to Kathy - who just lights up the shop on Sunday afternoons. Now I take eggs, chat to Kathy and Rebecca and buy chocolate hearts for Jai and Priya and chocolate fish for Niki! A brilliant shop. Worth visiting just to watch the young skateboarders who take forever to choose their chocs. This prompted a discussion last Sunday about our own childhoods and selecting sweets from the big glass jars in dairies. Remember gobstoppers?!!
