Waipukurau, New Zealand

February 1978

Had a good trip down though was a lot longer than I’d thought. The weather is beautiful totally contradicting everything I’ve said about the bad N.Z. climate. Fine 80 degrees each day.

Am staying with my sister and her family on their sheep farm at the moment so have been out working in the yards helping keep these dumb animals heading in the right direction. Managing also to get in some tennis and swimming. Hope school is going ok. Come visit us soon.

Love, Jen

Pania of the Reef – One of the numerous legends of the New Zealand Maori, this rather sad love story concerns a reef in Hawke Bay just off the coast of Napier. The story is perpetuated in the form of a bronze statue which stands in the gardens of Napier’s Marine Parade.
