Farewell Conor and New Zealand

Breakfast this morning and a trip up the sky tower where we could see all across the city and surrounding area.

A walk in the park, a trip to the Auckland art gallery, coffee and chat, another trip to St Patrick's Cathedral and the Parish office where no record of Bishop Henry could be found which is rather amazing. His predecessor and successor are mentioned but no trace of our man.
We did get an email address for the Archivist so will follow up with the search when I get home.

Then the moment I dreaded when the farewells to Conor and Layla had to happen.

A few tears and the two doctors headed back to the airport as Conor was scheduled to work tonight.

Nick and I had a consoling pint in Fr Ted's before an Indian lunch, a last search for the elusive Bishop (no joy). a walk to the harbour, another pint or two and it was time to hit the road to the airport.

The end of an absolutely fantastic trip in lovely New Zealand. So sad to leave this lovely country and Conor and Layla, softened a little with our stop over for two nights in Dubai.
