I can always recommend to visit the Dove Myer Robinson Park in Parnell. It is especially delightful during the early morning hours with only very few people around. The sun is putting up a great display of lights and shadows, finding its way through the thick leave coverage of the trees.
The water in the judges bay very calm, reflects the clouds and sky. A hot flat white to go, a donut or muffin and maybe a book, what else do you need to start a sunny Auckland weekend day?
