  • Memories of Elaine
    We have been friends for 28 years in both Nanoose Bay (Fairwinds) and Whakatane New Zealand, especially Whakatane where we wintered for so many years and did so many things together.
    We have had many delicious dinners prepared by Elaine in their home, many coffee gatherings at the Robert Harris restaurant in Whakatane, dinners out together in Ohope Beach and Whakatane, and joining Elaine, Bernie, and their exercise group for coffee at Chin Wag's in Kope.
    We did an annual trip to Tamarunui for a golf tournament in February and shared many an adventure there including Elaine and Margaret doing the Forgotten World Tour - golf carts on the railway - to visit the tunnels and see the Whangamomona pub for a lunch. Of course there were dinners and awards nights at the golf courses too.
    Elaine and Bernie were always the gracious hosts and we enjoyed meeting their daughters Helen and Kathy and son-in-law Mike when they too were visiting. Elaine was always well informed and a pleasure to talk with. She will be in our hearts forever. Margaret Thomson and Rodger Miners
