Waitemata Harbor Wonders

In which Miles enjoys unusual sights on Auckland’s harbor.

A day spent working on Prince’s Warf in Auckland is always scenic, but frequently I’ve enjoyed something surprising and unexpected.

I posted previously about the Hōkūleʻa and the Haunui, boats built to demonstrate the ability of ancient Polynesians to sail across oceans.  More recently I was treated to the sight of a building being moved across the harbor by a pair of tug boats.

I haven’t been able to find out what exactly was happening.  best guesses include the building being an event center or restaurant, probably built to float where it was first located.  For no reason that I can discern, some guessed that it was being relocated to Waiheke Island.
