Time Travel

MontaguStreet  

A bunch of us travelled back in time on Saturday night.  It wasn't  as hard as they make out in those sci-fi movies.. all it took was some beer, mixed with some wine and combined with some special BBQ mushrooms.

Our trip took us all the way back to 1989 to Montagu Street, London; just around the corner from Marble Arch.  Here we all are sitting on the bench outside our old residence.

It was great to go back and re-live old times but unfortunately we didn't revert back to our younger selves and it wasn't long before Trevor realised he had left his 'old man' pills behind and we all had to travel back to the present with him.

It was agreed that this exercise will have to become an annual event in the future (or is that the past?) Its confusing - like an episode of 'Lost'.

North Head Tunnels

One of the nicest spots to visit in Auckland on a sunny day is North Head, an extinct volcano just outside Devonport on Auckland's North Shore. From this great vantage point you can look out over the harbour taking in all the eastern beaches from the city all the way around the coast.

North Head is home to some interesting tunnels left over from its military past.

The boys and I took Ross for a bit of a wander through the tunnels.. I think he enjoyed himself but he was pretty scared in some of the dark tunnels.

We had a good morning before heading home to get ready for the evenings BBQ.
