Lake Wanaka

Not only is Wanaka the driest town in New Zealand, its charm makes it the fastest growing town in the country.

Wanaka was where my front tooth broke and a local dentist could only suggest she glue it back.  She did not expect it to last more than 5 minutes but the adhesive survived three days before the tooth fell out again.

Our motel apartment on the lake was close to the Ripponvale Vineyard and an easy walk into town where I gingerly ate Blue Cod and Chips in Speights Ale House.
