New Zealand - Day 2
Driving out of Auckland Airport we ended up on the wrong road heading into the city, so took a circuitous detour to get back to Highway 1, which we followed into the city, over the harbour bridge before turning off to Devonport and the Peace and Plenty Inn.
Our room, the Windsor suite, is very nicely decorated and has a cute en suite bathroom, although the bathroom windows reveal a bit more than they should...
Then we decided to catch a bus to Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Adventure. Unfortunately we got off the bus (mea culpa!) a bit too soon and ended up walking most of the way. The adventure was expensive at $25 each, but we did get to see king and gentoo penguins up close and personal.
After that we went back into town and Jen had to look at some cards, it's what she does.
We also stopped off at the AA for some free literature on NZ before we took the ferry back to Devonport.
Back in Devonport, we strolled out to Cheltenham beach and back before going to Manuka restaurant for a fantastic supper. I had lamb shanks and Jen had pasta.
