Another beautiful sunrise, another beautiful day. Sadly we have to say bye bye to the Beach Bach and return to the mainland.
George come by in the morning to take us back to the ferry. Our plan is to stop at Oneroa for lunch before catching the ferry. After searching up and down the main street we eventually find the Tourist Office (what’s the point of having a tourist office if no-one can find it – even the locals?), but their system is not what I would call secure (we were going to leave our bags for a few hours) so abandon that plan and head for the ferry back to Auckland.
I’ve got a mystery deal and we are pleasantly surprised by The Langham Hotel at the top of the city. We check in and drop off our bags and head out straight away for a late lunch.
There’s only one place to go – our fav – Ponsonby!
Last time we where here we had booked to go to the Blue Breeze Inn but cancelled when I got sick. As it was highly recommended we decide to check it out. Excellent choice. It got this Hawaiian / South Pacific vibe about it but the food is modern asian. And pretty god damn tasty too. A few drinks, laid back atmosphere, scrumptious food – that Sunday afternoon taken care of.
Afterwards we do a bit of shopping and then head back to the hotel for a nap. Too lazy to go out again we stay in order room service and watch a movie or two.
Tomorrow we head home 🙁
