New Zealand Day Twenty: Another Walk In Auckland And A Visit To Rangitoto Island
My trip to New Zealand was coming to an end. I awoke on my last full day in this beautiful and remote island country wanting to see as much as I could in the few hours I had left. I was up early to watch the sunrise.
I read that the best place to watch it rise in Auckland was near the Westhaven marina. I was waking the streets along the waterfront in the morning twilight.
As usual in most large city, I was joined by many joggers, walkers and commuters.
I soon realized the route to the mariana was not as direct as it looked on the map and I rushed through the streets to get there before the sun rose.
I didn’t quite make it, but i was still able to see the sun low in the eastern sky from a park across from the marina.
I left the marina and crossed busy Highway 1 on a pedestrian bridge.
