Food and wine at Waiheke

Ringgggggggg went the alarm clock. 7am Saturday 16 August 2014.

Too bad, I can’t sleep in this Saturday. We had planned for a car load of seven ladies including myself going to Waiheke island. A text on my cellphone told me one was sick so we ended up with six who went for the adventure. The weather was good and we had a great day of fun, food and wine.

Waiheke is renowned for its beautiful beaches and award-winning vineyards and restaurants. The trip is an hour’s ferry ride from Half Moon Bay, Auckland.
