We slept in until 11:45 this morning, partially by accident but also it was lovely to get some sleep.
We had our breakfast, showered and finally headed out at around 13:30.
We got onto the bus and had to change at downtown onto a bus taking us further north.
We got up to an area called Fremont and walked towards the Gas Works Park.
Gas Works Park
The gas works park is a park which contains a former coal gasification plant.
The style looks very ‘steampunk’ and it is a really awesome thing to look at. This place was used from 1906-1956 and still looks great for its age! This is actually the old remaining coal gasification plant in the US!
We woke up and had a small breakfast before Kim spoke with her family for a couple of hours.
When we were going to get showered, we noticed the water wasn’t very hot at all. We left it for 30 minutes and then it seemed back to normal, which was a relief!
We then went out to see our friends Vicki & Mike, and their children! We went to a park and had a nice little picnic and a catch up. The weather was much better today and the sun even warmed us up at times!
We then left the park and made our way back home to relax for a bit, before goung to Glenfield Mall for the night market, which happens at different locations around Auckland on different days of the week.
There is mostly food there, but a few other shops too.
We wanted some Asian food so, after having a walk around and even trying some Hungarian thin bread, which was tasty, we got a bao and some breaded chicken which we ate whilst walking around.
Before we left, we got some sweet chilli chicken with noodles as our main and a cheesecake dessert for Kim.
We got home and are our dinner whilst watching The Last Leg and then at 22:00, we spoke with Curtis’ family for a catch-up, which was lovely.
