It’s an early start this morning, Sandra is taking me to Tauranga so I can meet Harry and Rita. Harry is my Nan’s cousin so I think that makes Sandra my cousin once removed. I think??
Does anyone know how the cousin thing works?
Anyway, it was lovely to meet them both and we had a cuppa and a catch up. We got to talk about the family tree and it was really interesting. I’ve even mentioned a few names which he didn’t have so maybe he will add those too.
We then headed over to Mount Maunganui (Man-ga-nu-ee).

In the distance is Karewa Island.
Apparently you can see a lot of seals and dolphins around the island.
The day we walked around the mountain was very hot, to the point where we had to buy ice-creams when we finished.
