Sometimes it almost feels like paradise

Auckland lies on an isthmus between the Waitemata and Manukau harbours. The Waitemata, on the east coast, is the better known and much more popular, with most of the city’s best swimming beaches and easy access to open water for sailors.

The Manukau, by contrast, is a huge, relatively shallow and largely enclosed harbour, accessible from the Tasman Sea only by crossing the treacherous Manukau Bar.

This afternoon, the Big T and I took advantage of some rare sunshine to drive out to Cornwallis, on the Manukau.

I’m glad we did.

While this is obviously not a six-word post, I am sharing it to Six Word Saturday, hosted by Debbie at Travel With Intent.
