Hooked up with my mate Devo a few days back and he mentioned of a vineyard party on Waiheke Island. It's about the size of Saltspring. great little place for Aucklanders to escape to. I stayed at a farmhouse on another mountain called Maunganui. Mareva has been WWOOFing there for about a week now and her host let me stay the night. I don't have any pics of the vineyard and dance party but the view atop the mountain was spectacular. Danced the night away, got to bed by 2 and up at 630 to catch a cab to the ferry so I could bus to Raglan (btw I sold my car for a $900 profit). Not bad. Anyway enjoy the few pics I have to offer.
