Week 7: Ports of Auckland Trip

Ahoy Bloggers Yesterday we went on our Ports of Auckland Trip. Prior to boarding the boat we walked down to Wynyard Quarter. We were supposed to have lunch down at Silo Park but the weather wasn't great and it poured down. The water disintegrated our name tags on our jackets. So we walked down to The Cloud and had our lunch there.

After that, we boarded the boat and cruised around the Ports of Auckland. There were so many containers and machines working in the ports. We saw a digger digging up dirt from the side of the port. It reminded some of us of what we had seen on TV when people search for gold. Once we finished looking at the digger the boat took off at high speed and some of us got drenched! We went under the Harbour Bridge and around the yachts.

Did you know Auckland is also known as 'The City of Sails' because of all of the sails you can see around the ports. Have you ever been out on a boat before?
