Fish n Chips – Achillies Point

Thursday the partner and I decided to head out for a drive around the bays of Auckland.

We decided to get a bite to eat and found ourselves once again at Kohi Fish and Chips takeaways this has to be one of the better Takeaways just off the main road around the bays, It’s cheaper and certainly the fish & Chips are great tasting. You can find them at 41 Melanesia Road, Kohimarama.
We drove to the shore and sat with our fish & chips watching the world go by and enjoying both the lunch and scenery, Better still I had great company.
We headed off further up the coast through St Heliers and onto Ladies Bay where we stopped at the Achillies Point look out.
Here they have information around the battle of the river plate against the German battleship the Graf Spee in 1939 against HMNZS Achilles from New Zealand it so happens my Grandfather was on the Achillies at the time of the battle.
It was a great day and as always we enjoy ourselves. The coast here is very popular and lots of eateries to choose from.


A little about myself as things have changed.
Have been interested in Ham radio for a number of years operating at the moment just on UHF VHF however I do have HF capability’s but due to antenna restrictions it is hard to get on these bands at the moment.
Have a vertical for the HF bands however my area is not the best for transmission.
Have a wonderful partner that I share my life with and we recently got engaged. No my partner isn’t into radio although she does supports what I do. A breath of fresh air from the last I had.
I hope to get active again on HF soon. I have said this before however I’m keen to get back into it.
I monitor the National System from work these days which is good as some days are slow.
