A weekend in Russell

We have been to Russell (located in the Bay of Islands) a number of times over the years. We usually take up residence in the Top 10 motor camp with a tent. This time was a little different given my wife was due to give birth in about 1 month – needless to say an air bed on the ground in a tent was not an option!

What to do in Russell? Walk around, look at the history, then site at one of the bars along the waterfront and enjoy the sea breeze. There is a certain nautical ‘air’ about the place that I really dig.

Waiheke Sculpture Trail

If you live in Auckland you will have no doubt heard of this iconic piece of creative artistry – many pieces to be precise! This is a great way to spend a day. Grab a coffee in Devonport and ride the ferry to Waiheke. Sample some local food and then proceed to do the walk. It takes about 40 mins. We took a little longer as the shutter kept going ‘click’!

I hear they have recently updated some of the art works, so I think come next summer we will pay the lovely little island another visit.
