Auckland - City of Sails: Pine Harbour & Maraetai

August 25, 2008

A sunny afternoon and Andy is home from work early. Means, out there and enjoy the nice weather! This time we went to Pine Harbour and Maraetai, approx. 30 km away from Papakura.

See google maps here:
Papakura - Maraetai

The weather was so good that we could walk around in T-Shirts without getting cold. Really nice!

When we saw the boats at Pine Harbour we wanted to jump onto one, but unfortunately they´re not within our financial possibilities

After a while we took off again and went to a nice beach not far away: Maraetai.

We had a really nice afternoon there. On the way back the rain caught us once again, but that didn´t matter. I´m so happy that Andy knows so many great places here and is showing them to me
