    Ah, we visited Snells Beach :-) Sleepy town, long shell beach, only a couple of takeaway shops. The water is warmer than anywhere I've lived (true of the whole region, I expect). You have to go through "the worst intersection in New Zealand" to get there, quoting the locals. Weird 5-way stop on the highway. One excellent coffee shop/brunch place on the way into town. Our car dealer worked in North Shore Auckland and lived in Snells Beach, so that's apparently doable.

    Thinking maybe Waiheke Island. I would have thought it impossibly expensive, but after a few years making American money again, it looks down right affordable. Going to try it out for a week or two next year.

    Aotearoa still has a pull, then! Nice to see you around.
