To celebrate ANZAC Day, Justin and I took the ferry to Devonport (again....b/c my husband loves a boat ride!) for a little beach site seeing and biking. First stop was Cheltenham Beach a short ride from the ferry stop. We laid on the beach for a little while reading and observing the crazy's who ventured into the water. The water is pretty cold here and I was chilly just laying on the beach in shorts and long sleeves! We then biked on a route taking us by Narrow Neck Beach and Takapuna Beach. We thought this would be a leisurely ride based on the distance but didn't account for the constant up and down hills. We were pretty wiped out after our ride. We had a late lunch at a cafe in Devonport called Platters. Platters is a really cute place with views of the bay from your table and really good food. After lunch we took the ferry back home to Auckland. We had dinner that evening with some friends and enjoyed tacos and games! Not a bad day at all for a random Wednesday off work!
