Ray was up early and went out for coffee. I slept in a bit. Went up the hill to Sky City for breakfast. Walked down to the waterfront(7 blocks) and took a ferry to Devenport, an area that was an island but is now joined to Auckland by a causeway. It is a beautiful area with lots of shops and lovely old buildings. After shopping for awhile we had lunch at a little cafe. Ray walked up to Mount Victoria, which is a cone of an extinct volcano. During the Second World War they had a gun emplacemnet to protect Auckland against the Japanese. Walked back to hotel and packed a bit. After took a walk to Albert Park, uphill all the way. Great old trees, couldn't find anyone to tell us what they were. Must be over a hundred years, with huge trunks and roots that were above the ground. We looked for a monument of Albert but all we could find was one of Queen Victoria. Went to a Thai restaurant for dinner. Last night splurge!
Up at 5:30am tomorrow to leave for the airport.
