Wandering Around Wanaka
We took it easy the day after the big race, starting with a nice lie in. Then I took the crew to see the Wanaka Tree. What's the Wanaka Tree, you ask? That's what they asked too. I kept seeing pictures of a tree in Lake Wanaka - it was on logos, pinterest, everywhere. So I figured it was something we just had to see. Turns out it was a little tree in the lake that looks a little cooler if you get the camera angle just right.

We were still thirsty so headed towards a brewery we had seen. We stopped and grabbed sandwiches and stopped at th embanks of the Clutha River. The water was a beautiful turquoise colour and it was a great spot to have an impromptu picnic.
