Howick, Auckland.

We were again treated to another fine winters day so took a trip out to Howick Beach. Although small in comparison to Pt Chevalier Beach it was still a safe beach for families. There were area’s of the beach where there was no sand, just volcanic rock which had the appearance similar to the Rotorua mud pools which had become solid as the volcanic activity cooled and solidified. As I had forgotten to take my camera all the photos were taken with my phone (something I haven’t done before) with surprising results.

Last night we dined out at an Indian restaurant called Indian Summer that Mary and Tony frequented and we were not disappointed. We ordered 4 different dishes and bread’s so that we could sample a wide variety which was a treat.

Hello again, I bet it is good to be home, even though you had a great narrowboat adventure. We visited Auckland last year, and spent the day in Mission Bay, where we enjoyed a fabulous fish and chip lunch in one of the sea front cafes. We will be there again on the 3rd March next year, as we do the world cruise all over again in reverse! We loved NZ. Regards. Peter.

Hi Peter and Margaret
Sorry we never met and in March next year we will be in the south island touring there. We will never forget our time narrowboating but time moves on.
