    A day sussing out the big country!

    This was our end of year work do in the weekend, usually we play golf and have a nice dinner out. This year we decided to really have a good crack at something decent. On Saturday we all met up in Wanaka and chilled out at the lake and took everyone for a spin in the boat, then had a bloody good night out with an awesome meal at the landing.

    And for the main event yesterday I organised with one of my best mates to fly us round in the Squirrel for the day, we headed south from Wanaka into and through Fiordland, up thru Milford Sound, out and up the coast, stopped for lunch on a beach where Pete and I got in our gear and jumped in and got a couple of crays and paua for everyone for Xmas. Then it was back in the chopper, thru some of the big south Westland country up thru the head of the Arawhata and stopped on Isabel Glacier for a few photos before heading back to Wanaka for a cold drink and icecream. Was a bit hard to get up and go back to work today!
