Auckland Is Your Land...

Wellington's show was maybe the best yet... lots of dancing and singing and carrying on by the audience, who seemed primed to hear a rock and roll show. They got one. Extended solos and great pacing made it a night to remember. No technical glitches, no problems!

We had an 11:00 a.m. lobby call for a 12:45 flight. Smooth and easy and still no I.D. checks. The view of Wellington from the air was superb, but I did not have my camera out. One hour later, we landed in Auckland and spent the rest of the travel as an off day.

Harbor Ferry, Auckland NZ

Above is one of the commercial ferries that take you around the harbor in Auckland. It's a 20 minute walk from the hotel to the water.

Boats Against The Current

A beautiful warm, sunny day with enough breeze to give the sailboater's some fun.

Bob On The Dock

The Fabulous Britt Girls will be happy to see that Dad is well and getting some sun.

A flat chain link fence caught Bob's eye, so he gets the Art Photo post of the day

Britt Depository

On the walk back to the hotel, we stopped at a CD/DVD shop and took advantage of the "1 for $15, 2 for $25 or 3 for $30" CD special. I grabbed the triple-disc "The Essential Bruce Springsteen" and a Country compilation. The CDs, although new, are already opened and the discs are behind the counter. As usual, they were playing Fogerty when we walked in, in this case the live version of "Fortunate Son", which Bob played on.
