A lovely day

Looking towards Auckland City from Bastion Point.
What a glorious day we had with friends yesterday.  The friends had never visited Auckland before, so a quick tour of the sights was in order.  After living in a place for some time you often start to take things for granted due to their familiarity.  I must say that I've always seen Auckland as a lovely city, but taking visitors on a tour helped us to appreciate the place we live just that little bit more.  We are truly very fortunate to live in such a beautiful city.

Even thought the day was pretty overcast we had a great time.  Up "One Tree Hill" to enjoy the views across both harbours, check out the old buildings and wonderfully landscaped parkland.  Cornwall Park is a real gem in Auckland's jewelry of treasures.

After "One Tree Hill" we headed towards Mission Bay for Fish'n Chips at the Fish Pot Cafe, stopping off at Bastion Point on the way.  As always the fish was superb at Fish Pot Cafe!

A trip on the harbour, a walk around the viaduct and a sunset stroll on a western beach ended what was a wonderful day with old friends.  I'll end this post with a few more shots.
