Leaving Lowburn we headed for Lake Hawea, calling in to Wanaka Airport on the way.

IMG_1257The engine in this Yak was being run up to extremely high revs hence the chocks under the wheels. What a noise.

Leaving the airport we called into Wanaka for a money machine. It didn't take us long to find one in the main street.  The town was absolutely full of tourists and no parks anywhere.  It was a beautiful day but we couldn’t get away soon enough for our next destination.
