We’ve had some lovely visitors this past week. Our niece, Frances, was with us for a whole week and we all enjoyed her visit very much. She sketched a picture of Freud for us before she left. I love it! Thank you, Frances. She’s a very talented young lady.

Then we had the pleasure of my own aunt today. We took her for a walk in a nearby Kauri forest.

She is here for just a short work-related trip. I love having visitors! After dropping her back at her hotel, we went to Takapuna beach for a walk.
