A Camera Obscura is being built near the Bascule Bridge and on Thursday we read that the steel part of the structure had been put in place. It was fabricated by a local company then barged up the river before being transferred to a truck for the final part of the journey. Its shape is a tribute to Whangarei's ship building past.
The photos above are from the Northern Advocate but coincidentally, we started our Parkinson's walk at the Bascule bridge this morning so I took some more photos.
There is still a lot of work to be done and it should be open in November.
Meanwhile, on the weather front we have another "Weather Watch" for heavy rain and strong winds tonight and tomorrow. With the ground still wet from our previous deluge there could well be more flooding so we have planned to stay put tomorrow.
