Tourist in my own city | 1

Friday, April 8, 2016

For years we've driven over the Auckland Harbour bridge and I've lost count of the times I've said "we must walk under here someday".

At Easter, finally we decided on the spur of the moment to do just that. I can't even imagine the impact on the residents of the clifftop in Birkenhead when in the years leading up to 1959, the Harbour Bridge was built - right over the top of some beautiful villas! People still live there and the houses are still beautiful. They just have a humongous concrete structure towering over them.

We walked down under the bridge and around the area. I took a heap of photos. Here are a few faves.

The next day we went on a little road trip to places we've never been. It's so nice to get out and explore your own back yard. So often we're envious of others travelling overseas to exotic locations, but really, we have a lot of magic right in our back yards. It's nice to appreciate it:)

Thanks for stopping by.
