There was a large 'installation' to greet us when we arrived at Kauri Point Reserve this afternoon. Wattle Downs is beneath the flight path to Auckland International Airport so I can only guess that someone is being warmly welcomed.
Upon close inspection I deduced that the visitors are coming from across the Tasman, as each of the letters are adorned with green kangaroos and yellow lettering representing each of the Australian states.
Someone had gone to a lot of trouble, as the grass surrounding the message had been mown and and effort had been made to cordon the area off.
Another dog walker commented to me that he wondered how long they would last, citing vandals as a possible problem. Not to mention inquisitive little dogs looking for a place to pee.
