New Zealand (Finally)
Our first day in New Zealand is spent relaxing and getting acclimatized.
Today we ferried over to Waiheke Island which is about a half hour east of Auckland. It's a very pretty island that is known for its wine, Mediterranean climate, and white sand beaches. We visited three wineries and had some very good wine. They are known primarily for their reds but I really enjoyed their whites because they aren't so overly oaked like we are used to in CA.
Tomorrow we pick a car and drive to Coromandel. "Stay left. Stay left!"
