I went for a walk to my local beach, the weather was amazing today with so many people taking advantage of a day of walk to enjoy the sun sea & sky.

Thought I would share them with you.

The fountain at Mission Bay is a favourite of children even though there are signs to the effect of no paddling etc but signs are there to be enjoyed.

Mission Bay is visited by most visitors to Auckland being a mere 7km bus ride from the city it is an ideal spot catering for family groups.

More information on Mission Bay can be found on several websites including these


Welcome To Mission Bay Auckland Beachfront

Mission Bay, New Zealand - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



The fountain is named The Trevor Moss Davis Memorial Fountain & the story about it's origins can be read here

Death ends the good life | Stuff.co.nz

This story was published after the fountain was closed for repairs, although local residents feared the repairs would not be carried out but fortunately they were.

Nice photos, Anski.

St Heliers (just along from Mission Bay), and in particular the 'cafe culture' all along the front, is the reason we're here. It's where my husband first decided that he could live in a city like Auckland. So I'm eternally grateful to the place.

Thank you for sharing those beautiful pics Anski.
Is it normal weather for April? or was it particularly warm that day?
We are actually having a better autumn than summer. The days are lovely & sunny around 20c but the nights drop down to about 8c.

Today i enjoyed a lovely prawn feast at the Fish Markets sitting outside in the sun sipping a wonderful NZ Sauvignon Blanc Ahhhhh! it does not get much better than this.
