I have been away for a much needed break with some wonderful friends at Whatuwhiwhi. Maureen had an appointment at Whangarei Hospital last Wednesday and I went back up with them. I hadn't realised how exhausted I was and on Thursday we just stayed there and did nothing.
On Friday Maureen drove me to Kaitaia and I was able to catch up with fourteen friends - some I visited and others I met in the street or shops. I also visited the new Te Ahu Centre which has been built around the old Community centre that we helped raise funds for not long after we moved to Kaitaia.
The Te Ahu Centre incorporates the Museum, Library, Community Centre, Cinema, Information Centre, Council Offices and a cafe.
