Looking around Wanaka...

Today dawned cold and wet...but that didn't stop us! :-) About 11 am we headed out...


My 'big coat' got an outing today


We had all been invited to lunch by my DsD2's MIL. Val rented a house here in Wanaka for the last week or so and that was the venue for today's get together. Some of the other guests had to leave early as they had heard that snowfall was threatening to close Lindis Pass that they needed to traverse to get home.

After we had lunch we headed off to the Warbirds and Wheels Museum in Wanaka.
There is a lovely cafe fitted out like a 1950s diner...





Then there were the cars and motorbikes...wow!




The car below is a Duesenberg which has been authenticated as having belonged to the actress, Carole Lombard...




















And then there were the old warplanes, all beautifully restored and displayed...







A very interesting place...
