Sunday Offer

 We've had an amazing summer here in Tauranga with relentless sunshine at times. This over the Matua mudflats.

I finished a challenging puzzle today. This one is of the cover of the New Yorker in 1952
I discovered that in the early 50's and 60's we had a commercial wine maker here in Tauranga. He was located in Maungatapu. These are two labels from his range of wines. I found the story in the Tauranga library historical collection of local history. Web site is this link

The Lads Again. Jayden

The race (Jay right)

My world

Loves the ball
We had fun looking through all the old bits and pieces in the Antique shop. A real test for me "what's this pop?"


The Lads Again. Lewis

Lewis in Yellow. Can be crazy!
And likeable
With his brother and best mate.
Lewis, a real character
Very proud of his drawing to go with the Spider poem.

Historic Village Waitangi Day

 It was a really great vibe down  at the village today. Busy as. Lots to do, lots to eat and zero issues.

The boys had a good time thanks to all the people that made them welcome.

Lets start off with doughnuts
Spinning plates were a big hit.
Marble maze balance boards

Not easy as Jay demonstrates
Lewis too
Lewis with sock Poi
Jay got the hang of the juggling sticks
And the Hula hoop
Off the ground
Clever entertainers

Early on a wet summers day 2024. A few eye catchers.
