World Masters Games 2017

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 untitled
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

Wedding night

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!

Orca around Tiritiri Matangi Island

WOW! Orca spotted around bird sanctuary Tiritiri Matangi Island. The ferry to visit this beautiful island is only a short 10 minutes drive from us. “This group of around 10 orca was photographed near Tiritiri Matangi Island on September 20. They are not common in this area and seeing them was a bonus for Massey researchers who are studying the occurrence of bottlenose dolphins around the Hibiscus Coast. Photos, Kate Harder and Blair Outhwaite.” Local Community Newspaper Hibiscusmatters October 1, 2015
