We spent three nights with Lesley and Gordon in their delightful home on the north shore a mere 10 minute walk from the ferry to the Bayswater ferry terminal and a 12 minute trip across the harbour to central Auckland.
The Bayswater ferry is not as frequent as that from nearby Devonport but there was always the option of being dropped off in Devonport so we took the opportunity to be dropped here, explore this picturesque town before going across to the central ferry terminal. Returning we scheduled the Bayswater link so there was no need for a lift and didn't present a problem.
We were treated as long lost friends and even shared a meal and the 7's rugby final with them ... accompanied by a welcome beer or two.
The breakfasts were more than adequate - wholesome and a work of art whilst the bed boasted crisp cotton sheets and in the shower - big fluffy white towels.
In a way it was sad to leave such a welcoming atmosphere but rest assured we will call again when we come back to Auckland.
Well done and thanks Lesley and Gordon and remember you know where we live.More
