A letter from our guests:

Dear John & Barbara

Joyce & I reflect over & over on the wonderful experience we had last March in NZ. Especially pleasant was the time we spent in your lovely home on Lake Taupo. You are splendid hosts.

John, afternoon fishing with you was exceptional. After sharing the smoked trout at your breakfast table, we did the same the next morning in Christchurch. Thank you so much for a neat afternoon fishing with you.

We remember your beautiful country but were most impressed with the lovely NZ people we encountered.

Look us up if you come to Colorado.

Your friends.
Jim & Joyce
