Tuesday 7 February 2012: Auckland Harbour - At Last!
Finally got here this afternoon, following yesterday's problems, after an uncustomary smooth flight compared to recent attempts and a lovely friendly welcome from averyone we've met so far, airport & hotel staff & everyone working at the SkyTower which we made a beeline for. Resisted taking the Sky Jump or Walk (though got shots of brave souls doing it). Loads of wonderful landscape shots to choose from, but went for this of the Harbour Bridge taken, not with the aid of lens, but through one of the telescopic viewers on the top deck.
Pick up the campervan tomorrow and head for Bay of Islands.
