so from Waiheke Island to Mount Eden Village, Auckland

My goodness! Sunshine at last – after a lovely breakfast in our historic B and B we headed off to take a look at Mount Eden to appreciate the 360 degree views over Auckland from the rim of this extinct volcano.

Waitakere RangesFired with enthusiasm (mainly due to the Sun!) and armed with towels and other beach paraphernalia leant to us by Christine, (who with husband Anthony runs the delightful Eden Villa bed and breakfast hotel) we decided to head West on the Scenic drive though Waitakere mountain ranges to KareKare beach – sweeping black volcanic sands, bordered by huge lava bluffs and lush rain forest made the visit both worthwhile and a little surreal.

Circus Circus CafeBack at Mount Eden Village, we have chosen for the second night to eat locally rather than to head up to Ponsonby in Auckland as there is an array of eateries – Thai Eden restaurant which served us as good a Thai meal as we have eaten in any town or there is Frasers cafe bar or the “Circus Circus” Cafe, the later wining the Best Cafe awards New Zealand 2010, great fun for a late evening or breakfast.
