Today was mostly a travel day as we head back to Auckland for our flight home. Thanks to frequent roadworks along the way, the trip took over five hours, but we still had time for a lovely walk along the lake after we arrived.

Public works of art have been a consistent theme during our visit to New Zealand, and today was no different. They come in many forms, some functional (built into the paths), and others purely for pleasure.

Our hotel was right on the water’s edge, so we were treated to a stunning sunset as we sipped wine on the balcony.

Three days from now we will be in the air, and in four we will be in the snow… 😦

    Gorgeous sunset! Thanks for the tour. Loved following along on what can only be called a Memorable Journey

  2. Glad you enjoyed it. We’ve definitely managed to experience much of what New Zealand has to offer – though yesterday as we were driving past one of New Zealand’s active volcanoes we said “don’t you dare…”.
