Auckland the windy city!

So Thursday Chilling out at the house as the weather was something else. Very heavy rain then sunshine then rain and it was tropical rain that would sock you in seconds. I popped to the shops in the afternoon and the rivers were flowing very fast and high. It turned out watching the 6pm news that 4 miles down the road they had had a hurricane! Yep a hurricane in Auckland 4 miles down the road, mental!

Friday, involved a visit to my granddads late brothers wife. She was a very interesting person to talk to and it was lovely to see a picture of my granddad, brother and father. Later that afternoon I headed on the buses for 2hr back up to Waiwera. Here I met Lois in the local pub and had dinner with a couple of beers.
