Back in Auckland

Ok I’m back in Auckland and need to catch up.

Popped into Kerikeri thismorning and took the pod through the Stone Store and Kemp House. It has certainly changed since the last time I was there and for the better I might add. We grabbed a bite and went and ate it overlooking the Rainbow Falls with Barnsley Bill.

After that we headed of to Waitangi and did the obligatory tour through the treaty Grounds, Treaty House and Meeting house, then cruised south to stop in at Ruapekapeka.

Very impressive site that held off the British army for 12 days. Very nasty place to assault.

Pretty shattered now after the long drive back. I’ll catch up tomorrow. I have a long post about the new Uber-Lord Mark Ford. I think that he is a mistake for that position and we will see why in short order.
