Trip to Kaitaia

We left Uretiti early on Friday morning as we had an unexpected trip to make to Kaitaia. It was one of those amazing blue sky days with nary a cloud in sight and with light traffic it should be a pleasant trip.

Back track a day, on Thursday my niece Natalie and nephew Stuart called in with their uncle and cousin on their way north, it was great to catch up with them all. We would be seeing them all again tomorrow. Yep, a not a photo taken, too busy gasbagging!

Back to Friday. We planned a quick, very brief stop in Kerikeri to drop off a couple of books to Roy’s cousin Stuart, books that were given to us when we were researching family connections in Mendrisio Switzerland. And it was a very quick stop, sorry Stuart, but we hope you enjoy browsing the books, until we meet up again soon.

As we passed along the coastline through Coopers Beach, we could see that the seas were flat calm and Doubtless Bay was a picture. You will have to take my word for it as I was too busy driving to take any pictures.

We arrived in Kaitaia just in time. We were here for the funeral of Beryl Lunjevich, my late sister-in-law Ann’s mother. She passed away on Wednesday 13 June reaching the ripe old age of 97 years, 9 months and 3 days!! She lived a long, fruitful and eventful life. Although a sad occasion, it was lovely to catch up with everyone in the extended family.

RIP Beryl.

    Sending our condolences to you both , but what a great age. No doubt Beryl would have had many interesting stories about her younger days.
