For the first time in living memory (it seems)
Auckland had wall to wall sunshine.

ACTA decided to do the Auckland 50k route,
starting at the sunken garden in Cornwall Park.

This grove of magnolias is not far from there.

Yeeha!!   Spring must be on the way!

Lunchtime at Mission Bay.  Although it was gloriously fine, there was a fairly cold sou'easterly blowing.

Mission Bay had lots of people making the most of the day, but they were well wrapped up in
their winter woolies.

Looking out to Moehau.  It is not often that there is no cloud on the tops.
