The end of a visit

No sooner had she arrived in the country, she was off again. Alex arrived back to Auckland on Sunday after her trip to Gore for Lee & Matt’s wedding where she was Maid of Honour. According to all reports, the wedding went off without a hitch and they all had a fabulous time. Lee put in a huge effort for her wedding day, to the extent of even making the unusual but beautiful bouquets.

Roy and I picked up Alex from the airport on Sunday evening where we then headed straight into Mt Eden for a family dinner. We were joined by Simon & Anita, Antony, Jacky & Chris (honorary family members). We enjoyed a lovely evening before heading on back to our van parked at Ambury Regional Park. Although we did witness an “interesting” event in the carpark as we were leaving, not that I can explain in detail here as it is x-rated!!!

Monday and we headed into Jacky’s to get Alex’s washing and drying done before she packed. That accomplished, Antony joined us and we headed off to the Fish Market downtown for a spot of lunch. Niece Erin just so happens to work not far from the market. A quick phone call later and she also joined us for a spot of lunch.

The rest of the day seemed to fly by and before we knew it, it was time to head out to the airport. This is always the hardest part of any visit, but we steeled ourselves and bade a fond farewell knowing that we would see Alex again in October.
