Waiheke

On our second day in Auckland we took a river cruise to Waiheke island.

 

Waiheke island has some beautiful beaches and many different wineries scattered across it. The trip started at Auckland harbour where we took a 1/2 hour ride on the ferry across to the island.

From the boat we also got quite a nice view of the city!

From there we hopped on a Waiheke bus and took it down to one of the beaches on the far end of the island. We stopped and took a long walk down the beach and a had a picnic lunch. We also ended up going for a quick swim even though the water was much colder than we had grown accustomed to in Australia.

From there we took the bus back to a local winery called Wild on Waiheke. We sat down and got a few drinks each. It was a great tasting. At the winery there were a bunch of activities going on. They had giant chess, archery and bocce ball. We ended up playing a quick game of bocce ball before calling it a day and heading back to our bus and caught the ferry back to Auckland.

Yummy Yummy Wine!
