here’s a bit of a story for you. i’ve haven’t really posted much life stuff on this blog as i’ve been doing that elsewhere.
yesterday in between (and during) rain showers we walked on a new bit of motorway in central auckland
it was open for 4 hours only as a celebration of all that is great about motorways and engineering and being a kiwi.
and you could look down at all the spare bits of bridge they had left over (that always used to happen with airfix kids didn’t it)
to be honest, it didn’t look particularly solid from underneath. but i did an electronics degree, so what do i know.
and it really felt like a lovely community thing. they even put some diggers out for kids to climb in and pretend to drive (there were no keys in them)
there they are look. i don’t think they were workmen’s ones. unless workmen wear blue woollen gloves.
i loved it despite the rain. it’s great to celebrate big feats of engineering and this was done in a lovely community way. we even got postcards to show we’d been there.
there’s something very cool (“sweet as”) about the way white lines are drawn over here. rather than being a solid line of which paper they seem to be made up of lots of runny drops
