Yachts in Viaduct Basin

Let the holiday begin: In Auckland

Anne here.

So exciting to see a bit of Auckland again. We keep saying to each other “do you remember this from last time?”

Although in truth we will only see a very small part of Auckland again.

Now bear with me I’m going to be very British and talk about the weather. The forecast was very dramatic – thunderbolts, lightening, cyclone strength winds. But it didn’t get as far as Auckland.

Instead, after a foggy,  very humid start, we got brilliant blue skies, glorious sunshine and sparkling blue water in the harbour. Perfect holiday weather.

But it was so different to the forecast, all the locals were talking about the weather all day. We felt right at home 🙂
So after walking down the main shopping street, we spent most of our time just wandering around the harbour looking at the boats and enjoying the sunshine.
Followed by the most idyllic leisurely lunch.
Oh yes, and then there was the cannon …!
