Yesterday was national children's day in New Zealand. Devonport celebrated by having a treasure hunt. We decided we didn't have enough time before naps and then church to participate in the hunt but the kids still enjoyed the ride on toys that had also been brought out for the festivities. Maya's favorite ride on toy is a small roller coaster.
Devonport has a several great park areas, our favorite is on Windsor Reserve, located between the library and the ferry. There are lots of trees for shade, an big climbing playground (which is also very safe for little ones) and a see-saw.
If you look in the background of the photos you can also see the ocean on the far side of the grassy areas.
Thankfully the kids are much more interested in the toys than the water. Maya is much easier to photograph at the park, Max runs almost everywhere he goes.
This photo, while not especially pretty give you an idea of how close we are to the city. You can see the SkyCity needle in the distance.
