Our new residence, beginning tomorrow will be the resort/fishing town of Whitianga (pronounced "fiteeanga"). They have only a tiny group of about 20 members attached to a branch in Coromandel. We won't actually drive up there until tomorrow.
But we have arrived in Hamilton safely albeit a little tired. Buddy ( dad, grandpa) is still fighting the cold he got just before we left so that's been a struggle. We spent all morning trying to get oriented to what our new jobs will be. It looks like I'll get to do some family search classes since the last senior couple that left in November had a lot of the people in the town coming to classes for that. Whitianga is a resort town so since its summer here its about twice the size of what it will be in the winter. We hear that we will be in a townhome right on the beach that has a couple of floors with its own washer/dryer and 2 or three bedrooms. We'll post more on that and pictures when we get there. We're so excited! More to follow tomorrow!
