Left to our own devices we wandered around Wanaka streets and around the lake. Hot windy day down here. Met a local who said this is very unusual wind for here as the lake had white caps! Houses are on mountain slopes and have lovely gardens and we were surprised by the colourful gardens. We walked for three hours then went back to our apartment and made brunch! After some food we were energetic again drove to Albert town and Hawea but it was still very windy so we didn’t get out for another walk. We plan on getting out again after our stir fry dinner!
