Brrr, it is blimmin cold. Snow is forecast for the lower South Island. We had a few sprinkles this afternoon, it has settled a bit in Queenstown. Apparently overnight we are due for a big dump of it :(
Colin and I went on a road trip today to Lawrence, a small township an hour out of Dunedin. We went with 11 members of our Volkswagon Car Club. Colin and I organized this club run, the first out of town event we have arranged. I am sure if the weather was not so bitterly cold, wet and windy, we would have had a lot more attendees coming.
Anyway we met and set out at 11am this morning, arriving home at 4pm. We met another VW lover in Lawrence about 6 months ago. He told us to bring our club up sometime to have a look around his Vintage Machinery and Car Club he belongs too.
We stopped at a warm Cafe first for lunch, called the Wild Walnut. Great service there :) , we then made our way around to the club.
It was super, they made us feel very welcome, even apologizing for the weather :P We saw neat old cars, tractors, collections of bottles, valve radios, tvs, newspapers, telephones- all sorts of things. It was fascinating. We all want to go back sometime to have another look… on a warmer day though.
A good day out, even though Colin and I felt like our toes and paws were going to fall off due to the coldness.
We may not get to work tomorrow, depending on the overnight weather….Right I am going back towards our wood fire to warm up my paws again. Have a good night.
