Lunch at the Noodle Bar and looking out to the foggy slopes. And then one final shot with the backdrop as we left (cleared up by the arvo)

Love how wide this place is! Can go wherever u want! So cool!!

The Cow Restaurant, Wanaka

Garlic bread, pizza and pasta. We got the mushroom pasta which was a bit meh, but the garlic bread and pizza were good!!

And the venue was really cool too.

Puzzling World, Wanaka

Pretty cool place! Trying to do the smooth criminal thing on the bottom right - one of my 2 fav rooms! The other was the big-small room (top right)

The maze (top left) wasn’t as fun as I expected it to be :( got bored and frustrated and ended up climbing over a fence to get out :$

This was our “off-day” trying to relax and rest up but we spent it hiking!! Sooo much more tiring than snowboarding as well! Picture on the bottom right is what we spent these couple of hours looking for… worth it? hmmm… *no comment*

Brunch at the Federal Diner, Wanaka

This place sounded cute and had decent reviews so we decided to come here on our one off-day. Oh how disappointing!!!!

Coffee was average (as in it was ok, not amazing not terrible) but the food was the bad kind of average!

3 of us got “The Monk: Eggs Bennedict with Salmon” for $18 and I think the fourth got “Hawea Flat: Spinach, Mushrooms, Tomato and Haloumi on Polenta Cake” for $18.

I expected smoked salmon but it was a slice of overcooked salmon fillet!! And both my friends’ eggs were way overcooked! How can you get a poached egg wrong when you’re a brunch spot!!!! Disappointment!!!

A foggy day at Cardrona
But the most amazing snow!!!! As with Coronet Peak - willing to sacrifice visibility for powder. Apparently one side of the mountain was closed the day before (mechanical issues with the lifts) so it meant the snow was perfect!!! Love
