We were up at 6.00am with a taxi booked for 7.00am to take us to the airport. Hopefully our Auckland flight would be on time! The weather was much calmer and we left on time at 8.10am. The flight only took just over an hour so we were out and about in the city by 11.00am. We booked a ferry trip to Devonport on the North …
