leaving on a jet plane....
A quick cuppa in Auckland with Nev's folks before the overnight flight to Los Angeles. Nevs mum, sister Christine and Christines daughter Lisa.
Saturday afternoon and the rugby is on....Manawatu playing ??? Didnt write it down. Nevs Dad and nephew Ryan enjoying the game.
Friends, Dan and Kay Jones.....Kay was the driver on our wet afternoon in Napier taking artdeco pictures. Dan and Matt were at the rugby. They are great family friends that go way back. Kay looked after Matt when he was just a few weeks old and I was finishing college. Nev and I did a canal trip in France with them in 2002
See you next time....a farewell as you walk through departure at Auckland airport. It was great to hang out with Shirley Peachey over lunch on my last day. We never did take that picture Shirley. Shirley and John were our homegroup leaders in NZ. Shirley will also be on the team to assist with Toni and Marcus's baby when he is born. She works in the neo natal unit, and will help stablize Ethan for surgery and then with recovery..... couldnt ask for a better person.
Thanks for coming on this trip with me.....a little history and insight into life in NZ. See you next time.......
