Lyn & John Jarden’s Travel Diary

Sunday, 01 Apr 2018

Location: Whangarei, New Zealand

MapApril Fools day began with church with our new Christchurch friends, Bev and Mark Taylor then after this it was off to visit our God Daughter Meagan and her family just out of town. They have a lovely location and a 1930's that will keep them busy for a long time. Their two Sons were really neat young adults and all in all a really great time before heading back for our Wellington group photo.
It was then a time for Lyn to browse the craft stalls and attempt to not buy too much, which she nearly achieved!
Happy hour was with our safari group which was a nice way to Finish as the departure and shocks at Kaikohe cast a damper on the end of the safari so it was nice to end on a happy note.
Then that evening it was a Vaudville Caberet act which was both entertaining and heaps of costume changes. The huge marquee cost $60,000 to hire.
Monday it was the closing ceremony and then breaking camp and bugging out about 2:00pm. In the mean time we had a really good catch up with Margaret and Ruffy, from Blenheim and Lyns school friend and we may end up going down to them in early August for some fishing which will be good. The meal and catch up with the cussys was really good and some family history was revisited!
Next morning it was off to Whangaparoa and our Auckland family.
