Where I stayed
Our day got even better when we returned to Devonport. We booked a tour of the town by Segway. We had s half hour training sesssion and then away we went with our instructor. We travelled around the harbour and then went for a tour of the waterfront. I can't remember having so much fun in a long time. I always wanted to try driving one of those machines and it far exceeded my expectations. Cathy N, when you and Bill come back here next year this is something you must do!
Tomorrow our rental car is being delivered so we will be packing up and leaving. Our next stop is Dargaville. It will be our first car driving experience in NZ so wish us luck.
On our first ferry ride to downtown Auckland we were amazed to see the Cunard ocean liner Queen Elizabeth 2 tied up at the dock. It is huge!! It was here for 2 days, a very impressive sight.
