We are at the lookout by the Arataki Visitor Centre, at about 400 metres above sea level. Below us the solid fog that dominated the weather on the southern fringe of the Auckland isthmus yesterday, in the distance the ridges of the Waitakere Ranges, and a blue sky with white clouds tops it all off.

Spare a thought for the numerous travellers who got stranded because of the fog. “An airport spokeswoman said 94 domestic departures, 102 domestic arrivals, 19 international departures and 17 international arrivals had been cancelled or delayed.”
