I ♥ Auckland - Auckland Harbour Bridge/Westhaven Marina

The Auckland Harbour Bridge has shaped Auckland's landscape for more than 50 years. Opened in May 1956 it provides a lifeline for people, goods and services connecting the narrow isthmus that is Auckland to the North and to the South. Considered to be an Auckland icon, it is affectionately called the "coat hanger". 

Westhaven Marina, located just across from the Auckland Harbour Bridge, and in downtown Auckland is one of the largest marinas in the Southern Hemisphere. Owned and operated by Waterfront Auckland it is the home to a wealth of yachts and launches. It is not hard to see why Auckland is known internationally as "The City of Sails".

Beautiful views of the Auckland Harbour, Angela. There are so many boats, it must be a huge marina.
