  1. Mission Bay is special, probably my favourite spot in Auckland on a good day but, Val, I’m with Paul on this one, a cafe or restaurant is just the thing. I’ve not yet been swimming at Mission Bay – although the water looks inviting, a cool drink or coffee, a chat and great views takes some beating.
    Happy New Year and we hope the weather clears soon.
