We have had a great week with Di here but sadly she leaves this morning. Ben is arriving this evening though, yay.
Yesterday we went for a walk around Meola reef which is 10km long lava flow from the Three Kings volcano. It’s the longest lava flow in the volcanic field and was created about 20,000 years ago. It used to be the city’s dump for many years but has now been converted into a reserve. A couple of photos.

You can just make out a sky scraper in the second photo which I believe is in Takapuna on the North Shore. There’s also a pinkish building on the other side of the harbour and that’s the Chelsea sugar refinery.
