A group of 35 people met at the carpark beside the duckpond at Auckland Domain for an interesting night walk. We set out at 7:15pm and circumnavigated the duckpond. In one place we saw a goose, as well as admired the vegetation with our torches and headlamps.

From there we went up alongside the wintergardens and past another pond and a large sculpture before going on to the Auckland Museum all lit up in red splendour. We walked around the museum before stopping for a group photo near the cenotaph. After admiring the view of central Auckland by night we went back down to the duckpond carpark and on to Lovers Lane.

This was a bush track that followed down a gully with a stream. It was now time to dim our lamps - there were heaps of glow worms lining the side of the track like a starry night. We did a little circuit around some bush tracks near the bottom before returning back up the track  to enjoy the glow worms once more.

After we finished about 8:30pm those who were in the ABTC homegroup had a brief time of prayer for a club member who was badly injured in a road accident a couple of weeks ago.
