      ... through The Haast Pass. We had to keep stopping to admire yet another view...The Hates of Haast, Thunder Creek Falls, The Blue Pools and finally the beautiful and huge Lake Wanaka.
      It was early evening and we were getting thirsty so we stopped at a hotel/pub in the township of Luggate for a ginger beer. Inside a hen party was in full swing....a complete netball team and lots of hangers on. The other bar was full of farming types. Just as we were leaving a ...
