Our gymnast had an opportunity to practice at the gym in Wanaka (ryhmes with Hanukkah) twice this last week. We drove 2 hours one way to get there. Afterward, we went to town and enjoyed the sights and sounds and tastes (there was a fantastic Celiac accredited GF Fish and Chips food truck!) of the Holiday Market.
Christmas is definietly downplayed here, and I must say I find the lack of consumerism refreshing! This was the most “Christmas-sey” thing we have seen so far.
On the way home, we pulled over at a lookout, and the views were breathtaking.
Setting the camera on the hood of our rental car, this is my first attempt at a Holiday photo this year.
Continuing on the winding road through the mountain, there are farmlands and beautiful views, and then we came to Bradrona (located in Cardrona) which is a long fence covered in bras in support of the Breast Cancer Foundation, and It. Was. Fabulous.
It was amazing how many women it attracted. We even witnessed one donating her own bra. On the spot. Shirtless.
This did inspire some pretty terrible improv jokes on the way home. What did the surfer boobie say?
“Hang two brah!”
On that note, I will end this post.
