This is Herne Bay Central Auckland and in the background you will see Auckland Harbour Bridge. That goes to the North shore.
The ground is a mixture of sand and silt – a type of mud. Here I was with my dear friend Madeleine and we were walking her neighbour’s dog, Claire.
I know several boats come and go. These are great beaches. At the moment Auckland has problems with its drainage and I wouldn’t advise swimming in the beaches around here until they have that sorted.If you do best go for a shower very quickly and don’t put your head under the water.
