New Years Eve Day on the North Shore

Notice the title , cause that is the suburd of Auckland where the marina is ,Auckland is huge!

The Tremblay family photo at the National Reserve Park - we are on level ground and yes , Emma is the only one shorter than me!! Maya is just , just ever so slightly taller than her mother
New Years day was a blast!!! The kids have met more boat kids - twins ( boy and girl) Daniel and Anderson (15) and their brother Josh ( 16). they have been cruising for over 3yrs , came from England and have now moved on land here by our marina. Nice kids!! They really enjoyed being in the crowsnest. They all went over to their house for a swim in the ocean ! will hang out again once they are back new years day afternoon.

After the swim we went and checked out the navy bunkers at the Natonal Reserve Park just in Devonport. very cool!! and a fantastic view. we spent a couple of hours there going through all the tunnels and checking out the canon areas. This is actually an old volcanoe! very neat.
