Auckland at sunset, from Mount Victoria

While waiting to get the ferry from Devonport to Auckland, this is the view from the ferry station. I was lucky to get there on a clear night

Auckland has an attractive natural harbour. I have viisted twice and both times came away thinking it has not been well developed. The front of the picture shows a small industrial storage area which is not particularly attractive. Having said that it is most defiinitely a place to visit!

Last night in New Zealand - the Day, when New Zealand went into Corona Lockdown.

So lucky, we had this wonderful time there and I wish, we could go back one day.

I fell in love with this country.

To do our coast to coast walk, we took the train to Onehunga and walked back to Auckland. After taking this photo an angry guard came to let me know that no photos are allowed in train stations, sigh. The posted sign said no professional photos, but the guard insisted that no photos are allowed. So, this is the only one I have.

From around the Bays. On my way home from a lovely afternoon and evening visiting family last year.

 

The camera is precariously poised on the edge of the concrete walkway. Like the floor is the biggest shelf, the walkway is the biggest tripod. [Insert silly face icon ... {still haven't worked out how to do that on this thing}].

 

Happy Spring and Autumn everyone!

Protea is both the botanical name and the English common name of a genus of South African flowering plants, sometimes also called sugarbushes or fynbos. In local tradition, the protea flower represents change and hope. Wikipedia

Proteas first captured the attention of botanists during the Europeans' exploration of South Africa in the 17th Century.

From Wiki:

The Sky Tower is an observation and telecommunications tower located at the corner of Victoria and Federal Streets in the Auckland CBD, Auckland, New Zealand. It is 328 metres (1,076 ft) tall, as measured from ground level to the top of the mast, making it the tallest freestanding structure in the Southern Hemisphere and the 25th tallest tower in the world. It has become an iconic landmark in Auckland's skyline due to its height and unique design.

The tower is part of the SkyCity Auckland casino complex, originally built in 1994–1997 for Harrah's Entertainment. Several upper levels are accessible to the public, attracting an average of 1,150 visitors per day (over 415,000 per year).
