What an amazing introduction to New Zealand I had with my host Glen at her lovely home on the beach in Milford, a suburb of Auckland. This is the view from her balcony.
Just a little bleary eyed but happy to be on the ground again after 17 hours of travel.
Glen and I took a walk along the beach to a cafe for lunch and saw so many wonderful things.
Because there are so many small volcanoes in this area the rocks along the beach here are all lava rock.

At night I was lulled to sleep by waves crashing on the beach, it was so soothing. In the morning I woke up to this glorious sunrise. That is mount Rangitoto across the harbor, an extinct volcano.
This sums it up perfectly!
Wow! What a beautiful sunrise and the beach treasures are fantastic. Have fun!ReplyDelete
