The games we’re playing:
Barbara: Two of our granddaughters – Siina and Tiia – like to entertain us with the ukulele. At the moment they live on a boat at North Harbour while their house is being built. A fellow boat resident taught them how to play by Beethoven.
I love a big red such as an Aussie shiraz but Hawke’s Bay chardonnays are pretty darn good too. At the moment, we’re drinking Beach House and Babich. One of my favourite wine shops is First Glass in Takapuna, or I’ll shop online at Advintage (advintage. co. nz).
Serious Fun, the biography of Alan Gibbs. We went on the sculpture walk around Gibbs Farm in the Kaipara recently so I’m re- reading this book, which is an open and honest account of his life. And
by Kerry Howe who kayaked around the Hauraki Gulf from Auckland to Barrier and up north. It’s an enlightening story on the history of the islands in the Hauraki Gulf. Pilar. Ode to Joy
