During the RWC the Auckland suburbs are adopting a second team. Ours is Tonga and the nearest England sub is Ponsonby, luckily walking distance away :)
We popped over there last night for England’s first game and came across the Royal Family from their balcony…Thought that was brilliant!!
Can’t wait for the big red double decker bus to arrive. GO ENGLAND!!!
The view from the top of The Michael Joseph Savage Memorial, high above Tamaki Drive.
Gem and I walked from Mission Bay after sitting on the beach in the warm and up to see the view.
At the top was an old Maori village called a ‘pa’, the tribe lived up there to watch the enemies coming in from the water.
We could see the Wharenui (meeting houses — literally ‘big house’) but couldn’t get to it…I don’t want to piss off any Maoris….!!!
Going to meet Gemmy off her ship-not ‘boat’
I can’t emphasise how big it actually was, the pictures don’t do it any justice!
