Driving in the driving rain
20.05.2013 - 21.05.2013 17 °C
We set off from Wotamo reasonably early in pouring rain which had not relented since the early hours of the morning resulting in us and the van getting very wet and then consequently damp: we were both grateful to be staying with Martins Aunty for the next couple of nights condensation was even dripping from the felt roof as we drove through the rain.
We reached Auckland in good time and spent the rest if the day catching up with Martins Aunt who lives opposite Auckland city on the bay; the house had amazing views across the bay to the city in the distance unfortunately the rain made it less than photogenic but hopefully it will brighten up over the next couple of days in order to do it justice with a camera. We enjoyed a relaxed meal and showed our hosts some of our photos from the beginning of our trip before saying goodnight and climbing into a normal bed...oh the luxury!
