Day 5 - Wanaka

We had a bit of a lazy day today.  Got up and drove around checking out the scenery.  Decided to go and look at a gorge – bad mistake for me to actually look at the gorge as we are driving over this single lane bloody rickety wooden bridge – have no idea why I looked over !!!!  Anyway then we had to go a little further to turn around and come back over this stupid bridge again.

Part of the lazy day was because I woke up feeling ‘off’ – nothing I could put my finger on but just not myself, which I wasn’t happy about but what could I do except tell Al and deal with however the day panned out.

Made arrangements to meet with T at 4pm at Lone Star.  Turns out he is the head chef there !!!!!  Funny, of all the professions that we thought T would be in, being a chef wasn’t on the list !!!  We (more Al and T than me) talked and talked.  We worked out it has probably been about 15 years since they last saw each other.  Al got the phone number of another youngster he used to play baseball with (who isn’t such a youngster anymore !!!) who is now living in Auckland and called him later – he was stunned to hear from Al and is coming across to Brisbane in January so is going to get in touch with Al then and see if we can catch up when he is in Australia.

Another great day in NZ !!!!!  So happy with the holiday that we have had so far – it really has been amazing.  The scenery is to die for, the company even better and then memories we are making, priceless !!!!
