Across the Alps

Sunday morning and the Canterbury MG Car Club has arranged a brunch for us on the outskirts of Christchurch.  Twenty or so members of the Club arrived to greet us in their MGs plus a 1952 Lea Francis!

As usual for a MG event there was time in the car park viewing cars: men looking under bonnets and even the ladies admiring Goldie!

Ros and I gave a short presentation before we headed off towards the alps and in particular Arthur’s Pass.

At first the longest straight road we have driven in NZ (Say 5 kms!) up towards the mountains.  Bad luck however settled in as we approached: rain, mist and sideways wind!

A few walks planned cancelled and just enjoy what we could of the scenery.  A relaxed drive then down to Greymouth for the start of our west coast touring and sightseeing.
