Well my time in New Zealand has ended and I arrived home late Tuesday evening. It was so very hard to say goodbye to my parents and also heartbreaking. I so didn't want to leave them or New Zealand. I really want to go back there to live so very much.
Alzheimer's is an incredibly cruel disease.
Anyway some highlights of my time in New Zealand.

Another rose in the garden.
The fabulous Orewa Beach - I used to work very near here many years ago. We even set up office once on the beach which was fun!
A glorious day.
