From the apartment this is what they overlook, the rear side of Saint Matthew in the City, a wonderful historic church renowned for its neo-Gothic style, since its completion in 1905.
It was a surprise on the first day, when our kids were woken by the sound of the peal of church bells ringing out.
Just to the left of the red building which is Sky City and the Casino, you are just able to see the start of the Auckland Harbour bridge, which is in the Waitemata Harbour.
Life in the big city is so different, from the quiet and small Island where we live.
There seems to be always something to look at out the window, they can lie in bed and look up at the sky tower, there are people everywhere and it is much noisier with the sound of cars and sirens.
My dear friends, almost the weekend and just want to wish you a happy and relaxing weekend
