We had our last lunch in Auckland, at a wonderful Spanish place where I had not only a smoked fish salad with my crispy chicken-almond main dish, but also a steamed chocolate pudding for dessert. Echoes of England.
At top, I hope that the sea of masts is visible around the city, dubbed (if I remember rightly) 'the City of Sails.'
At the seahorse bookstore, I dropped a good bit of cash and requested that my purchases be shipped. That turns out to be pretty costly! But our bags would have been crazy heavy if we'd tried to carry the new books with us on the plane. Mostly shipwreck ones, of course.
