- Very beautiful views. Boats, ferries, islands, mountains, city. See both harbours. Planes, some small ones.
- Ask a person to take photo & take theirs. Tourist from Sacramento, just arrived today. Going to South Island next day. Only 2 wks for South Island & Sydney tour. A bit later, we talked a lot. I gave advice & answered his questions. Tell him where to find good sunset shots.
- So beautiful, made me want to cry for leaving Auckland & NZ.
