A toast to Auckland before heading home

We’re checking out of our hotel early today (Sunday in Auckland, but only Saturday in Honolulu) and heading for the airport for our return flight to Hawaii.

So no time for a special entry today.

Instead, our toast to Auckland. It’s been a nice place to visit. Time to get home.
