We spent 5 nights in Hanmer Springs with our friends Jason, Tracey and their kids Cass and Thomas. We had a great time. We went to Waiariki nature park, went for walks, spent heaps of time at the Hanmer river swimming and keeping cool in the 38 degree temperatures, we drove up the Molesworth Road to Acheron house ( had to take a pic at the Jacks pass sign too) and just generally lazed around and enjoyed being on holiday with friends. Cass, Jack and Thomas lived outside in the paddling pool most of the time. We had a great time and can't wait to do it all again. Maybe we will attempt camping next year.
