On Monday, the wedding party convened in Wanaka. The guys watched the Super Bowl, and then went for adventure–jet boating and off road racing. The girls went for a hike and had their nails done. The parents were treated to a Ridgeline Safari tour of a working farm. We saw herds of cattle, sheep, and deer all mixed in with each other. From the top of one ridge, we had a breathtaking view of Lake Wanaka. Quite spectacular.
Afterwards, Carol and I watched the Super Bowl at a pub in town. I even wore my NE Patriots T-Shirt.
Following that, we headed for The Lookout Lodge where everyone will spend the next days. The rehearsal is tomorrow and the wedding on Wednesday afternoon.
