Hanmer Springs day trip

On Thursday 13 August, we planned a lovely day in Hanmer Springs with Margaret Stoddart and Woodcote Retirement Villages. With the weather not looking favourable, we were asked if we had an alternate plan.. No we didn't! With summer in our name we were confident that the weather wasn't going to let us down.

We met early for a cup of coffee in the village lounge, van loaded with excited residents, we were ready to start our road trip. Nemo from activities was our pilot and I was making sure that everyone was awake all the way to Hanmer.

We stopped in Culverden for a delicious morning tea and a little catch-up time with some residents from Margaret Stoddart, and then we were on the road again.

We didn't waste any time getting in the pools, and after an hour in the pools we were off to lunch.

Sadly, it was then time to head home. With us all on lookout for the horses, cows, lambs and a few goats, we all managed to stay awake.

Oh! What a day it was. We hadn't even made it home yet and we were already planning our next road trip!
