Finally. She posts photos.

It's another gorgeous sunny day in Auckland. They say this is autumn, and certainly the leaves are beginning to turn a brilliant red, but it still feels like summer to me. The nights are beginning to get a little cooler and sometimes the air fills with smell of campfires and outdoor fireplaces. This is certainly the least polluted city I've ever lived in. I love being able to smell the rain that's falling across the habour and seeing buildings crisply and clearly in the deep in the distance. I think I got used to the eternal haze of and pollution of southern Ontario.

So here is my first post with photos. If it all works according to plan you should be able to click on these small images and a pop-up window will show up with the larger version.

The photos below were taken not long after I arrived. I was on the ferry on my way back to city central from the suburb of Devenport.

And I know what you're thinking... "She moved to a city that is almost a replica of Toronto. I mean just look at that faux CN Tower!" When you get upclose you'll see Auckland's Skytower does look quite different.

By the way, it's the tallest building in the southern hemisphere But they cheated a bit by building it on a hill.

Thanks for all of the comments you've been leaving. Its makes me feel a bit more in touch with home.



Great pictures,Heath! Have you considered applying for a job with New Zealand's Tourism?
I don't think I'll be seeing any skyscrapers in the Northwest Territories. But the Northern Lights over Yellowknife tomorrow night should be pretty spectacular!

yeah, it sure does look like the CN tower.
Love you lots. must rush off - lx levels and Q2Q today! OH, I'M SO CLOSE NOW!!!!
Big smooch x

Beautiful pics Heather!!!

Great pictures, Heather. Larry is taking some nice ones, too, of Yellowknife and the Caribou Carnival with your Mom and me. Will be in touch again when we fly into Rae Lakes on Tues. Love,M

Hello, Taylor likes the orange pictues. She wants to know if you've seen the Wiggles yet. She wants to visit you. Just for fun I'm going to check out prices.

More pictures, please! And it would be okay if you're in them!

Great to have your Mom here visiting with me. We watched some more Dene Hand Games here on Sat. night- (part of a smaller Winter Carnival just for our village) - more interesting for me with local people involved. Hope all continues to go well with you. Will be in touch again later. Mary

Thanks for all of your comments! So glad you all like the pictures. I will be putting another entry up very very soon. Tomorrow at the latest.

And no I haven't seen any hobbits or Wiggles yet, but I've got my eyes peeled.
