If friendship was made up of colours, ours would make a rainbow!
What better way to spend Sunday morning than with friends.
We welcomed home Kay and Ian and said Kia Orana to Sue who taught at Tereora in the mid 80's.
We wished Sue and Robbie bon voyage - they will visit Pasha in Pohnpei, fly to Las Vegas to see the sights, then on to Portland Oregon. Karleen and George have visited annually for the last 24 years. Dave and Kathy from Homer, Alaska have returned each summer for 15 years. Martin and Cynthia from Beccles, Suffolk, return each January to dive and snorkel. They all depart on Saturday, until this time next year. Aere Ra dear friends.
My counting was a little out of kilter so at the last minute there was a hurry and scurry to add a couple of extra places to the two tables already set. However, all 19 guests were soon seated and the fun began.
Johno and I were totally but happily exhausted, and spent the rest of the afternoon lazing at the lagoon edge, under the shade of the wild hibiscus trees.
