Puna Kai Festival

On Saturday we joined Astrid and went down to the Viaduct to see the Puna Kai food truck gathering. By the time we got there about 3pm things were slowing down, but we got some good pork belly and dumplings anyway.

The promo for the event made it sound a lot more Maori than it was in fact, indicating that this was somehow related to the ongoing Matariki Festival (basically Maori New Year). There were some nice posters about Maori food traditions, and some vaguely local touches to the foods, but mostly it was just a food truck roundup.

After lunch we walked around the waterfront for a while and ogled some of the sights…

The skyline is not actually falling in on itself, but this wide panorama showed the limits of my iPhone lens.

Working boats like the San Hikurangi sit cheek by jowl with super yachts like the Encore.
