First Sight seeing trip

Well on Saturday, Marie and Dave and Ellen, Louise and Joe took us to Auckland Central, the picture Left is Auckland Town Hall. and the picture below of Louise, is taken at the train station, the fountain behind her is actually a window to the tracks below, there were others dotted in the carparks, and you could look down through them...you wouldnt get that at Doncaster station...or even London!...and it was so Clean!!

We walked through the streets to the Tower, we went to the Metro Centre first for lunch, a big mall with Burger King, pizza, Thai etc, all in one spot, a cinema above it etc....very modern and the grown ups had Thai, and the kids had pizza and BK, the Thai was good, and you got loads for $8.50 (£2.84 at current rates) and free bowl of soup!

Rob and I went up the tower, while everyone else stayed down below, $42 dollars for both of us to go to the very top.

The Parkers, had done it before so they waited in the Lobby and had a look around while we went up.

The price to Jump was astronomical, so I kept my cents for something important Like a house!...I'll jump off something crazy when I have everything set up and paid for (probably never then!! ha ha)

Heres one of me stood on the glass panels, and considering that I am not keen on heights I was ok with it!

The views were fantastic, and the pictures don't do the views any justice....

Any way, with the sun shining down all day we had a glorious day, and then went to Food Town to get some food in for tea....they sell Good Wine too...and we went to look at the Parkers future home....not bad views hey.........
