    Today we decided to go to Waiheke Island - about 20mins away from Auckland by ferry. We caught the ferry from Half Moon Bay and landed at Kennedy Point. We hopped on the Sealine tour bus and had a tour of the sights of Waiheke. We saw lots of vineyards (there are over 40 on Waiheke but only just over 20 make wine), and a few beaches. We were …

However, it is already too late and so I go back the next morning to the customs. This time there is another guy and who do not want to see the papers and stamped the carnet without asking!

    ... then to downtown. I returned to the guesthouse (Verandah's Lodge) around 11am, checked in and tried to sleep for a bit. Later Lucy picked me up and we went to hers for a BBQ (Johnny and Lucy's parents Pete and Margaret were there too). Very nice dinner, then Lucy dropped me back. Jet lagged so I think I'll sleep well ...
