Devonport.

During my first week in Auckland, I took the ferry to Devonport. Just a 10 minute boat ride away, it is a great escape from the busy city, with many people commuting from here each day. It has a really cute village near the ferry port, some amazing views of Auckland skyline, and some gorgeous beaches that feel a million miles away from the city! I have finally got internet for the day, and am resting before hopefully starting a job grape picking next week, so I shall line up a few posts of photos I have taken so far (so many!) and hopefully I will have some sketchbook posts to share soon, I have done a lot of drawing so far, very different to my usual style.
I have been in New Zealand for 2 weeks now, and still can't quite believe I am so far from home! I have been very lucky with the weather so far, so I am definitely getting my dose of Summer in, before Winter!

    1. The blue skies are gorgeous Polly! Yes, I was excited that Devonport was so close to Auckland, but now I am in Waiheke and that is pretty amazing too!

  2. I know it is naive of me to think that but I never really imagined a huge city in New Zealand! The weather looks great there!

    1. Haha, no I know what you mean Shy, most of what you see of New Zealand is the amazing natural landscapes, but it is good to know there is a big city too!
