• Christmas BBQ, 12 December 2009

    Christmas at Poronui officially started with a BBQ last Saturday night. The weather that morning didn't look too promising but as the feast was being prepared by Lisa and her team, the volley ball court was being pegged out, the croquet lawn mowed, the beer chilled and the fires set the sun appeared to showcase Poronui at its very best.  
    We had a great turn out of staff, guides, neighbours, contractors and friends. For many it was a good opportunity to relax and catch up during the very busy lead up to the festive season. For us it was a time to say thank you to everyone for their contribution to Poronui. 
    In the early hours of the morning the last of the party-goers bid farewell leaving the night to the embers, the stars and the Morepork owl.

    Here are a selection of images:

    Steve was handy on the BBQ, cooking the venison to perfection!

    Even the kids got into the spirit of the occasion!
