This transformer is in West Coast Road, Glen Eden, below the Waikumete Cemetery and near the Waikumete stream. It captures the essential elements of the location: manuka/kanuka shrubbery, the railway line, and most conspicuously the feathery heads of the toi toi on the hillside. The painter is Monique Endt.

Huia - This was the view towards Southwest when we were up on Mt Donald McLean recently. The soft light of the evening envelops the southern shores of the entrance to the Manukau Harbour, with the lighthouse on top of the Manukau Heads faintly visible on the ridge.

This chapel marks a corner of Waikumete cemetery, along Glenview Road, Glen Eden. It had fallen into disrepair and was fenced off for a considerable time, but eventually funds became available for a restoration. The refurbished chapel was re-opened on October 5, 2010. Here we see it in its night-time illumination.
