Entertainment in Auckland

We've just returned from a weekend's break from the boat work - a trip down to Auckland to see Billy Connolly in concert. We stopped in town in the morning to pick up some post and Billy walked past us, on what he described n the gig, as his 'daily stroll'. He was brilliantly funny in concert, though used quite a lot of his old stories that we'd seen on DVD, re-told with twist.

We stayed with friends Tony & Claire and met Tony's folks, Wendy and Warren. They've done a lot of sailing around the Pacific islands and, bless them, have lent us a huge roll of charts for Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Wendy and Warren don't have a boat any more but live in something way better - a motorhome. Not just any motorhome, though - have a look at this! Video
