On my recent adventure to Nelson in the South Island of New Zealand
I had the pleasure of staying a few nights at the Rutherford Hotel.
This hotel is an oldie, but I love it.
In the beautiful foyer is a gorgeous Wishing Pool.
You throw in a coin and make a wish.
All the coins are collected up
and donated to the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the blind.
The money is used to help the blind and visually impaired people in the Nelson City region.
The pool has fountains of hand crafted metal copper flowers...
And it is tiled with little aqua coloured tiles...
Don't you love the aged metal?
You don't have to stay at the hotel to visit the wishing pool, you can call into the hotel Cafe for a latte' or cuppa, and pop into the foyer to visit!
