Day 2: Queenstown, Crown Summit, Cardrona, Bradrona, Wanaka, Glendhu, Puzzleworld, Cromwell
The day started out a bit overcast with rain overnight, but it turned into a magnificent day of warm sunshine and blue skies.
I managed a brief morning walk and captured some fishermen preparing for their catch of the day.
Lake Wakatipu looked a bit brooding again this morning.
Ros and Bob were waiting for me to return and gave me a wave from the balcony.
We stopped at the most photographed pub at Cardrona and enjoyed refreshments in the sunny beer garden. The fire was on inside and there was even an outside fire going but the sun was warm enough for us. The garden was delightful and we soaked up the old world atmosphere as well as the history of the old pub.
We dragged ourselves away only to find ‘Bradrona’ just a few metres down the road. This was a fence full of bras of all sizes, colours and styles. It is a fundraiser for Breast cancer NZ and great fun.
Next stop was Wanaka – what a gorgeous place! Lake with snow topped mountains as a backdrop, with blue sky and warm sunshine. We asked a sales assistant for a recommendation for lunch and were thrilled with our selection at the Federal Diner. We would never have found it ourselves.
Our final destination was Cromwell a new town built when they flooded the old town to make the Clyde Dam. They moved some of the old buildings and created Old Cromwell precinct which was another delightful area. We visited the museum and chatted to some very helpful people as well as getting the bargain of the day.
I ❤️ being on holidays!
