Well hello! I'm cheating by writing this way after the date I did it. How bold. Anyhoos, I just want to bore everyone with every detail of what I've been doing since I got to the Shire!!
I spent the first few days just seeing some beaches and scenery around Auckland, more the North Shore of Auckland, which is where Karen's sister lives. Places we visted include Mission Bay, Devonport Beach, Takapuna Beach. All very lovely and great weather. Strong sun though, the ozone layer is not so good in NZ. Factor 30!
