Was very windy and rained overnight.  We were up early, 6am, left 59 Q  before 7am and on the 7.30am Ferry from Waiheke to Auckland. Fortunately the rain had stopped and we didn’t get drenched in transit.  The sea was rough though, we could see why the Ferry to Coromandel Peninsula was cancelled.

We were at the car rental place at 9am, took an hour but we got a cash refund and a 20 year old replacement car, not as nice but it goes 🤪 and air conditioning is really only a fan.  It has that old car smell.  Such is life!

We had a late breakfast today, then packed up and headed over the road to the 11.30 ferry to Waiheke Island, a 40 minute trip. As we got ready to disembark Greg remembered we had forgotten to empty the safe! We obviously need more practice at holidays! 😂
