Today I went with a group of ladies from the local church to a gathering of women's institutes from various union churches in the Bay of Pleny.

After the formalities of the meeting and a communion service we travelled from Whakatane to the beach side town of Ohope where we were served lunch outside at the Bouganvillea Cafe.

It was a beautiful, warm day and it was nice to be able to enjoy lunch outside.
Just a segment of the flowers in the garden at the cafe.
The hillside was almost covered in fern trees. Very cooling and peaceful.
After the lovely lunch at the Bouganvillea Cafe it was so nice to take a walk in the gardens.
Some more of the lovely garden attached to the Bouganvillea Cafe.
