There is a large volcanic cone with a road to the top not far from where we are living. The view is amazing. We are surrounded by amazing views. These are just a view...more to come....

One of the many beaches with in a 5 min drive of our home.

On brezzy days you can find lots of sail boats on on the water. It makes me want to learn to sail..

The view of a couple of the small islands outside of Auckland harbor.

More sail boats...

The photo gives a good perspective of where we live. You can see Auckland on the far left (look for the tall buildings and the Sky Tower). On the far right in from of the bridge you can see another tall building. This is just around the corner from where we are living. In the foreground you can see some of the homes and shops in Devonport, where we go shopping and visit the library.


  1. For some reason your blog updates haven't been showing up on my bloglines feed so I had some major catching up to do. I'm so glad you guys are getting settled in and meeting people. It looks absolutely beautiful and like such a fun adventure. It's fun to live vicariously through your pictures :-)!

  2. I am totally installing mushrooms all over my front yard TOMORROW! To hell with the neighborhood CC&Rs.
