Captain Cook at Parekowhai’s Lighthouse

A rather subdued Captain Cook at Michael Parekowhai’s Lighthouse.
Perhaps he’s pondering the the state of Auckland’s State housing or just why he’s been locked up…
The sculpture of Captain Cook by Michael Parekowhai is called “The english Channel”

The P&O Pacific Jewel on Queen’s Wharf, just behind the Red Fence on Quay Street.

A gorgeous view of the city captured from Stanley Point in Devonport. Right in the middle, to the left of the Ferry building you can see Queens Wharf. Today the NZ government and the Auckland Regional Council purchsed the property for 40 mil. NZ Dollars to develop it as a recreational centre for the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Queens Wharf is currently a depot for used cars and ripening bananas.
