The Sunday after the funeral, we went to Kaikoura for church as usual, and took the two aunts (one of my sisters and one of Gayle’s) along. Both babies at church fell asleep during the afternoon meeting!
After we left church, we took our sisters to the Aquarium. The little ones loved the touch tank.
The Aquarium is in a building on the New Wharf. When we came out, there was a fishing boat tying up to the wharf, and we watched it unloading. Then, it went out into the bay to anchor for the night.
We went out to the Peninsula, where my sister let Mr. Imagination take some pictures. We saw seals, ducks, and seagulls.
We climbed the steep path to the top of the Peninsula. The tide was high that afternoon, and the colors were amazing. This picture doesn’t even come close to doing the beauty justice!
I was amused, when we came back down and Gayle was bringing the van to where we were, to see these seagulls catching a ride!
A friend at church paid for a plane ride for our sisters, and there was room in the small plane for Esther and Mr. Diligence to go, too. They had amazing views of the mountains and the Peninsula.
