Snapshots of Auckland

Shelley is busy with edits, so here are some photos of places she’s visited during the last two weekends.

Sky Tower

This is the Sky Tower, taken from the Auckland Domain.

Auckland War Memorial Museum

This is the Auckland War Memorial Museum. I came across some people practicing playing their bag pipes. This shot is also taken from the Auckland Domain.

Marina and Paratai Drive

My brother-in-law has purchased a new boat, and we went to check it out. This is the view of the marina from his boat. The houses at the top of the hill are on Paratai Drive. This is the most expensive and exclusive real estate in Auckland with views over the harbor and Rangitoto Island.

Don’t forget – The Scarlet Woman tour continues at Amberkatze’s Book Blog. I’m talking about both Scarlet Woman and leopards and giving away a download from the Middlemarch Mates series.
