Episode 2 - Bronca Fox, Takanini

Vacation Weekend

Bronca's vacation was all about relaxation and quality family time - something that Bronca treasures dearly, but can find a struggle to fit in with all the other charitable causes that she squeezes in to her everyday life.

On the Friday, Bronca and family packed up their courtesy vehicles from Giltrap Prestige Skoda and were waved off by the volunteers that had arrived to "muck in" and makeover their garden. 

Snowplanet was the first on the agenda for the Fox family, who spent the afternoon snowboarding and tobogganing the slopes. Snowplanet kitted them all out with the complimentary passes, equipment and additional clothing they needed to manoeuvre themselves on the slopes until their hearts were content. 

Once the family had finished at Snowplanet they drove the short distance to Orewa, where they were very kindly hosted at Waves Motel, Orewa, by Margaret and Andrew Dutoy. This was the perfect location to chill out, enjoy the beach and the wonderful spa bath! 

That night nanny, Sarah Egglestone, arrived to look after the young ones, so Bronca and Dion could whisk themselves away for a complimentary dinner at Rocksalt Restaurant, Orewa. What a fantastic menu.
The following day, the family headed off to Waiwera Thermal Springs to swim and relax in the pools, hydro slides and spas. This was another destination that the whole family enjoyed and found hard to leave.

Sunday was all about relaxation and preparation for their return to their wonderful new garden in Takanini. They drove up to their house in Takanini in the afternoon to a huge crowd of volunteers (friends, family and contractors) who were so excited to show them all the hard work that had gone on around their property over the weekend.  There were smiles all around.
