Auckland - as Seen by a Tourist

Saturday September 28th, 2013

Weather:  cooler - low 20's.  Sunny/patchy cloud

Having spent most of our holiday 'doing' things, our last couple of days were spent chilling out in Auckland.  On Saturday we wandered around the shopping area and the quay:

And we had a fabulous meal at this restaurant - loved the interior decorating!

What we did not realise at the time of our meal, was the significance of this pub . . . . . all will be revealed tomorrow!

Auckland is a great city - right next to the sea, and the fabulous countryside.  It has a lovely quay and some fabulous eateries and shops.  But boy, it is hilly!  And our hotel was at the top of one of those hills!  Great for going out in the morning, but the walk back at the end of the day was not so good!
