Auckland City Dawn

A couple of weeks ago I was staying in the centre of Auckland city, far from my usual comfort zone. But one morning I awoke to see this scene from my bed. Not bad. I could almost get used to it.


  1. As humans we are usually able to adapt to anything if we have to but the idea of adapting to city life on a permanent basis horrifies me. Visits to the joys of the ballet, music, opera, museums and so many other things (including friends who live in cities) are wonderful but.....

  2. Oh, that's beautiful! Gorgeous pictures!

  3. Yes, GB, we are very adaptable.

    Jay - thanks!
