Yesterday was the first day of the Winery Tour!!
Here’s a little video of some of the day.
We took off from Auckland at 1 and had a real short road trip up to Matakana. To get to Matakana you turn right at Warkworth, BUT, if you turn left instead you’d get to the great Kaurawhero Community Hall where I recorded the Avalanche album. It’s nice to be back in the same area.
We arrived and hung out in our band room which was actually an amazing room inside the winery, it was stocked full with the local wine. I’m going to get very used to this tour…
It was a great first night. We met lots of really lovely people and it was amazing to see the Mutton Birds play their sweet songs! I sang the final song with Gin.
Today was Goat Island!!!!
Here’s a photo I didn’t take. But it’s what it could have looked like for us… Instead it was cloudy and murky, but still awesome!
First we walked to the Mangawhai shops to get some sweet deli rolls.
Then after that we took off to Goat Island. On the way we took a wrong turn and went waaay too far, but it was OK because we got to see this opshop. Which was WAAAY over priced. But had some cool stuff.
Goat Island was amazing! We actually didn’t see much because it was so murky and overcast but I managed to see two fish!! And the swim was worth it. This will be the tour of swims… If i have anything to do about it.
Tomorrow we head off to Whangarei! Where our day will be full of opshops. Yussss.
