here is rangitoto island (one of) our local dormant volcanoes.
we had a picnic up the top. our picnic was mostly very nice sandwiches made by mrs funkypancake. but this lady next to us had a pot with curry and cooked peas which she ate with proper cutlery. we couldn’t compete with that.
we explored some lava caves with torches (mrs funkypancake had read the brochure beforehand and so took her head torch)

we were proud to eat in a restaurant visited by such luminaries.
our container reached auckland docks on sunday evening.
