Tatt av vinden

Yesterday we walked along the waterfront in Auckland and in some of the streets. At the waterfront we saw Westhaven, the largest marina in New Zealand. And it dwarfed the marina in Opua several times. And the marina is not at all the only one here. There must be more boats than people in this city! Auckland is a friendly city with excellent restaurants, almost as many as the boats. The few we sampled was all very good. We look forward to come back here.
Today we shall fly home. We look forward to that too, maybe not to the long flight itself, but to arriving at home - even if we leave spring here and will arrive in Oslo to late autumn. When we fly back to New Zealand next year it will be autumn here, but still ok, they say. We do not know exactly when we shall be back, but probably late February. In addition to shipping Tatt av vinden to Southampton, we plan to tour the South Island in a small mobile home. That will be a new experience to us. We shall post reports and pictures. When we are back home we shall also post pictures from our last time in the Pacific, maybe even a video...
