Final Day in Auckland

October 20, 2010

For my last full day in Auckland, I took the ferry to Devonport, one of the outer islands that is home to the more well-off residents in the area that want to enjoy a quieter life from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The ferry is about a ten minute ride and come and go every half hour.  As it often does, it was drizzling when I left and mostly cleared up when the ferry docked.  There is a main shopping area with galleries, book stores, gift stores, and cafes.

I started to walk up Mt. Victoria, but it was a pretty steep climb so I went high enough to snap a few shots…

I continued to walk around the island…

…until I came upon the Naval Museum, which had only opened a week ago Saturday.  It’s a small museum with free entry but packs a really nice collection of New Zealand naval history.

Who knew?

Then back to the hotel for laundry and packing.
