Last week was an active time for many athletes, their partners and supporters who came to Auckland from all over the world for the World Masters Games! It was an absolute pleasure to host Jenny and Kevin who took the first place 3 times in athletics! The kids love their gold medalist hats Kevin, thank you very much
We also had the pleasure hosting two weightlifters who can count themselves among the strongest men in the world. Esteban and Alfredo, hope you made it home by now!
All very impressive and inspirational
This weekend April and Alan spent their wedding night at our B&B. What a lovely couple, congratulations! To make the room look extra romantic sister (in law) Sarah supplied nice scented flower petals and Hershey Kisses for on the bed. We got a nightcap of honey & gold liqueur with some sweet treats awaiting the newlyweds on their arrival. Awesome we were part of their special day in this way!
