Doug managed to get the sheet of fibrolite up and fixed in time for us to go down to the Town Basin to see the Sculptures in this year's competition. We timed it just right as "down tools" was at 1 p.m. just as we finished walking around.

Here are some of this year's sculptures.
It was not easy to photograph them as the area was roped off. They were very diverse both in materials and theme. Our favourite was the kiwi in a hand.carved by the lady who made the eel that Doug received for Christmas.
The judging and auction is tomorrow from 5.30 p.m.
