What a fantastic day for Autumn – The Pigalinas went on a bike ride from Hawea to Albert Town (20kms return) along the river and then spent some time with the family down at the lake.
(An aside – There is a video of Pigalina, aged 13, having a bit of a freak out in a blow up boat on Lake Hawea. I couldn’t get back to shore. The camera pans back to reveal that I was only about 4 metres out. How my family laughed. This time I managed to control my fear despite the other person in the kayak with me ignoring my frantic paddling back to the beach.)
As mentioned yesterday, Hawea is way better than Wanaka which gets all the glory. There were two other groups down at the lake when we were there. The next day in Wanaka the place was over run with people, cars, ducks and boats. Hawea for the win. Everytime.
