Last Day in Auckland and Journey to the South Island
After a busy three days teaching in Auckland for Patchwork Passion, I had some time off and enjoyed a wonderful visit to Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium.
I was delighted to see the large display of Antarctic penguins, both Gentoo and King penguins. I was very lucky to see feeding time. Here are the smaller Gentoo penguins. Such characters.
We also saw the larger King penguins including the most gorgeous nine month old brown fluffy chicks.
Here they are swimming to feed on some fish.
Thank you Robyn of Patchwork Passion for having me teach for your lovely shop. I loved every minute and look forward to the opportunity to visit again.
Here I am with gorgeous Cindy. Thank you for your most generous hospitality.
I was met by Rachel of Annie's Country Quilt Store who drove me to Ashburton to visit her beautiful store.
