On one of our regular weekly outings recently we took a step back into yesteryear and were treated to our own private tram ride around the new Wynyard Quarter in Auckland.
We arrived an were greeted by a team of very enthusiastic tram workers who clearly loved what they do. One group was taken first by tram to Rushworth's Cafe, where morning tea awaited us. We were treated to bottomless coffee and the biggest scones most had seen in a long time. After our lovely morning tea the tram returned with the other half of our group and were taken back to watch a wonderfully created film, taking everyone back to the days when Queen Street was a buzz of trams and the people using them. This was definitely a highlight for most of our residents as they themselves remembered their experiences when trams were a regular part of Auckland city life.
