Happy St. Patty's Day from Rangitoto Island

After a nice little picnic lunch we headed back to the city. There isn't much to do on the island, as there are no stores or even homes for that matter.
On St. Patty's Day, my flatmate, Jasmine, and our neighbor, Sake, decided to take the ferry out to Rangitoto Island. It's not a far ride over...only about 30 minutes or so. This is a believed to be extinct volcano that erupted about 600 yrs ago. The name Rangitoto means "Blood Red Sky" and is the youngest and largest of Auckland's volcanoes. To wrap up: A really big volcanic island with a great view of the city and QUITE a hike!
