a break from the shakes

Lane on the Devonport Ferry to downtown Auckland (via iPhone)

What a nice weekend we had! We traveled to our old stomping grounds, Auckland, New Zealand, to get a break from earthquake-ravaged Christchurch. It turned out to be a great weekend to be away - there was a large (5.3) aftershock in Christchurch on Saturday, temporarily closing some of the city’s shops and infrastructure again. Boo.

We, however, enjoyed a few days of sunshine, warmer temps, family time, and guilt-free toilet flushing. It was just what we needed!
