It feels great to sleep in on Wednesday. It's a day to stay local and start to see more of this delightful small community. We start by climbing up Mount Victoria, the highest point in the Auckland suburbs at 87 meters. Okay, by Rockies or Andes standards it would be considered a small hill. Nonetheless, it is a uphill climb which provides us with great views of Auckland's Waitemata Harbor. At the top we find the remains of Fort Victoria including a disappearing gun from 1899. There's also some "mushrooms", which are actually well decorated air vents.
Following Mount Victoria we drive to downtown and park near the ferry dock, then begin following a walking tour mostly near the Harbor. There are some beautifully maintained homes from early 1900's.
