Waiheke Residents at Play

Show and Tell last month at Waiheke Retirement Village

From left to right:

Rosemary McKenzie is holding her grandmother’s ingenious can opener and displays her tea towel with the braille alphabet.

Mary Batten is holding a hand-carved Totara walking stick, which doubles as a family tree with small photos of her family – from her great grandparents to her grandchildren – embedded in the stick. It represents the flowing tide and was lovingly carved by her brother for her 80th birthday.

Pam Reid holds her book of Waiheke Art & Poetry that she published herself in 1991. Signed at the time by some very well-known subjects, it’s a real treasure.

Audrey Gray holds her clay pot doll that she adores.

On the table is a wooden carving by an unknown artist bought many years ago at the Ostend Market – it’s of two bare-bottomed men. Next to the carving is a whale’s tooth.
