So while Mum and Dad (Aldwinckle) were off galavanting round South Island, we decided to have our own fun, or rather, our friend Dan suggested we spend a Sunday arvo floating down the Blue Spring, near Putaruru.
Unfortunately Laura was working, but a few days later her and Sophie had their own Blue Spring experience.
The water was a wee bit chilly, hence the wetsuits.
It wasn’t all smooth sailing, with some small rapids en route.
But well worth the $6 spent on a rubber ring i’d say, even if it didnt make it all the way to the end.
