Mid Winter Solstice Picnic

Four of us went on a mid Winter solstice picnic. We were going to hold it whatever the weather and we did.

Weather put on a great summer display for us there was no wind even. Yesterday was cold and rainy tomorrow is meant to be raining, we were so lucky. We ate platters of interesting things and a huge pizza in the sun all washed down with a good glass of wine..

We were watched by a big hungry looking Maori totem but he didn't eat much. After our picnic we walked down to the beach where sat and dreamed together and watched the dolphins pay out in the bay.

 Young Couple came along to go fishing and took a selfie together.

. A young couple also came to the beach to fish and took a selfie of us all.

It was a perfect day with perfect company.

Chinese Banquet

Erle and I went out with the Senior Citizens Club for a 10 course Chinese Banquet at Bamboo Gardens Blenheim.

 More than 30 of us attended and thoroughly enjoyed the feast. Erle had a small glass of warm Saki and I had a glass of wine, one of the men came past and took our photo, such a happy smiling photo, so unusual for us, I was over joyed when he gave the photo, I planned to take it home and show Erle but some how I managed to lose the photo. The man was happy to reprint another for us.

We do not have a working scanner any more so I had to take a photo of the photo to publish.
There were several raffles for us the prizes being the pretty flower plants on the table
