Adventures in Auckland

CBP-2015-04-Auckland-028After a few days up in Auckland on a training course, the rest of the family came up to join me for the weekend to stay with friends Mac & Brenda who live in an awesome spot backing on to Mt Eden/Maungawhau.  I had a great time exploring with my camera around the Viaduct Basin area on a couple of evenings, and at the weekend we were lucky enough to get out on Mac’s boat for a day from Gulf Harbour on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula out to the predator-free Tiritiri Matangi Island in the Hauraki Gulf, where we couldn’t believe how tame the takahe are.
