MONA a lighting and ambience
Among the beautiful and picturesque vines is located a not your average museum MONA, but you probably have already heard that.
The place is built mostly underground and from across the river looks like a fortress. Inside I love the exposed rock and bits you can see.The juxtaposition of contemporary items with old pieces is interesting. Works from Renoir to an Egyptian mummy and a whole lot in beteween to make you think or just keep going. There is something for everyone, the ambiance is spectacular, there is a peace and stillness that I loved. Had the O gadget guiding me to what i was looking at and listening to the artists interview were great.
I recommend lunch upstairs with a breathtaking view of the Derwent.

Beautiful handmade shoes make me think of my Dad, Nicholas.
We all have things that remind us of our Dads, vivid memories that we think of on Father’s Day. A cobbler and artisan most of his life, I have watched him make shoes in his various workshops over the years. If I close my eyes I can see him methodically securing the soft leather onto the wooden shoe last.
