Hi – This is a gorgeous island – nice climate, friendly. I’m having a great time. Plane from Singapore was 8 hrs. late, full but comfortable. Stayed overnight in Aukland, then Fokker Friendship flight to Napier that was beautiful. Last night we had 14 here for Jenny’s Bday party – lots of fun and food. Bron and Kelly have grown and are lots of fun, Tom is remodeling the bathrooms, Jenny is adjusting! I’m so glad that I came. Thelma and I are very compatible. We drink tea and eat biscuits all the time.
Gran Hotel Ancira. Overlooking the mountains with 250 rooms. A dignified atmosphere of Old World Charm blends with informal luxury.
I stayed in that hotel when I was about nine years old. There was a reception in the lobby and my father was there on business so he was attending the reception. For some reason I was wandering around the lobby and thought I saw my father so I went up and grabbed his hand, very happy to see him. I looked up and it wasn’t him. I wanted to crawl under the floor. It was a panic moment. But I soon found him and all was well.
