Here are my dear nephew and niece on the day she is heading down to Rotorua for two weeks. Ash is going to drive her to the bus stop, and she has been ready for hours! She can't wait to see IAN who is waiting at the other end.
. . . and took a rare chance to have a photo with Ashley!
Ash is in his car, and his Mum is having some final words with the two of them. . . sniff, where did those 'babes in the wood' go? Only yesterday they were needing to sit in bumper seats in the back!
Farewells with Mum and Daughter.
. . . and they're off.
THEN Helen and I went walking in the Waitakeres, with the customary chicken soup in a thermos.
