Navy Ship in Port

New Zealand naval Ship "Otago" is in Port at Picton.

Dessert arrives unexpectedly

Erle and I had an unexpected pleasure this evening. We had just sat down to our dinner when there was a knock on the door and  there was  Pastor Judy and Wayne our friends  with a beautifully laid out tray; with dessert for us. Wow what an unexpected pleasure! There were two big bowls with Chocolate Brownie one each, a jug of special whipped flavoured Cream and a Pinot Wine sauce  to drizzle over it all. 
It was wonderful, we seldom have any dessert so enjoyed ever morsel of this great treat.
We feel so grateful for the lovely gesture. Very good friends.
