Handing Over the Keys

We had a leisurely leaving of Waiheke today.  Went down to Oneroa to buy a hat because I left mine behind at one of the vineyards yesterday.  I am not Scala hat worthy.  I have left one in Greece and now one in New Zealand (stay tuned for the sequel).  We bought a hat, had a gelato and then Wayne insisted we go to the vineyard where I left my hat, Peacock Sky.  Lo and behold, after some consultation with numerous people my hat appeared.  Now I have 2.  Are two hats better than one?

Upon arriving in Auckland, we dropped our Avis car and Ubered to the Grand Mercury Hotel which is a block up from the Princess Wharf and Auckland Harbor.  This evening we met up with our Road Scholar tour group. I will hold off on descriptions, critiques, and overall New England snobbish comments until a few days of breaking bread together have passed.  But, I’m hoping for some entertaining stories to emerge.  Stay tuned.
