It's Saturday and a day for laundry so we have a somewhat lazy Saturday morning as the washer runs. After putting the clothes on the line we decide to tackle some of the trek that runs along the Wanaka river. We are hoping to walk to the dam where the river meet Lake Hawea.
We drive to Camp Hill Road, park in the small lot before the one lane bridge, and start walking north on the trail. We learn that this section is the Wanaka Whitewater Park. We enjoy looking at the rapids and the kayaker's having fun on the rapids.
The path is shared with walkers and bicyclists, and we meet both types. Everyone is happy on this sunny, 20C (68F) afternoon. The views at some points are stunning. After walking for a while we pull out google maps and realize that the dam is much further up the river than we expected. We turn around and head back, enjoying the views in reverse.
