Splashes of Colours

In love with Auckland – Day 4


Day 4 marked the second part of our journey. Waiheke Island is a popular short escape for the New Zealanders, not many tourists yet. I did enough research to occupy ourselves for 2 days 1 night.

The main attractions were the vineyards, which were spread across in front of me. And the best restaurant was in Stonyridge vineyard. The lamb was …. obsolutely heavenly. The marsh potatoes was cooked with truffle, and if you don’t know what truffle can do to a dish, go find such a dish and indulge yourself. 5 stars for Stonyridge!

We intended to have some high tea at Casa Miro vineyard too, but it was closed. Silly me, of all research, I missed out taking note of the opening days of the vineyards. It was still a nice pleasant uphill climb to Miro, so we were super heart-broken because of the long walk.

We continued our journey on foot to the Onetangi beach, and took a short break at Charlie Farley.

When majority of the shops closed at 5 ish pm and we both were a teeny weeny tired of fish and chips, dear decided to cook up a simple meal for two. πŸ™‚
