Back to Cook Street where I saw the Triumph Stags this morning. Cook Street is all of 200-300 metres long – a brief interlude between roundabouts – and runs alongside the Waikato River. It’s uniqueness – it links traffic from the east – Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty with the west – New Plymouth and Taranaki. There are other routes – this is ours.
A new riverside parking area has appeared in the past couple of weeks, complete with picnic table. The view isn’t too bad either. Peeking above Victoria Bridge the somber roof lines of Le Quesnoy Place over in Cambridge.
Across the road in surprising minimalist livery – black with modest yellow trim and signage – chalk on black board – the Pie and Espresso café. Which was until recently The Kiwi Pie Café.
