Some New Zealand treats

Today I received these treats from my New Zealand friend Daphne.

I had never heard of Hokey Pokey, but suppose to taste like a Canadian Crunchie Bar (sponge toffee). I know I am going to like it.
Nice to have friends from all over the world.

A trip to Auckland New Zealand

After leaving Australia, Mark and I made a two day stop in Auckland New Zealand. Turns out it was cheaper to make a stopover there than to fly directly to China.  The weather was cool and rainy but we loved it.

We went to the top of the Sky City Tower to take a look.

We took a 45 minute ferry boat ride over to one of the small nearby islands.

Mark and I will have to follow the rainbow back when the weather is warmer.
