To start with, here are photos of the sunrise as we left for Auckland on May the fourth for the Star Wars concerts, the views from our B&B in Meadowbank, and the Tesla Model 3 we had a look at on Sunday morning; ours being due to arrive in the next 2-3 months (we hope).

Lagoon and city with Sky Tower on a beautiful calm Sunday morning. Yep, we'll probably stay here again next time we're in town.
We were one minute from the train station; the trains go across that strip of land. There's a walkway and cycle lane beside it which we've walked before but didn't have time for this weekend, what with the visit to Tesla and meeting up with relatives.
Tesla Model 3 in red. We're tossing up between red and pearl white for ours but though the red is utterly gorgeous, the white has a subtle sheen; I think it boils down to whether we want to be noticed or blend in. I suppose the white is rather stormtrooper, so there is that. :-)
I almost forgot, though it will only interest NZers: I sat beside Shane Cortese on the plane up. I said, "It's Loki!" which made him laugh. He played Loki in The Almighty Johnsons, Hayden Peters in Outrageous Fortune, and Dennis Buchanan, in Brokenwood (and other roles I haven't seen). I said that he seems to have made dodgy lawyers and businessmen a thing, but added that one doesn't have to like a character to find them entertaining, and he agreed that he'd rather play characters like that as it's far more interesting than likeable roles.
