The second stop on my south Island tour was Wanaka, where I spent a day walking around the town and buying souvenirs, then went for a sunset walk around the lake.
I wasn’t the only one out enjoying the day – lots of other people were out and about. I’m hoping my middle brother comes out visit and we can grab a fishing charter on the lake.
I loved all the trees lining the shoreline. I kept on taking pictures with them framing the water but this was the only usable one.
And…I’m just going to say that I have a weird obsession with photographing ducks.
They’re so cute! And you can get so close!
I thought this looked like the most picturesque place to read a book or chat with a friend.
People were walking their dogs around (and in!) the lake. These pups were having the most fun.
Of course I got on the swing and played.
And finally, the marina where they kept the boats! I loved the snow in the mountains.
Wanaka was a really chill town! I’m looking forward to going back eventually and exploring some more.
