Over Easter we drove down to Dunedin in my 1970 VW Beetle to go to the 2012 New Zealand Volkswagen Nationals. It’s the first time I’ve been to one, so I was really excited – so many VW’s in one place, what could be better?!
On the Saturday we gathered for a cruise out on to the Otago Peninsula, then out along State Highway 1 to Waihola, across to the Taieri River Mouth and back up along a lovely scenic coastal drive to the rendezvous point in Dunedin. It was a lovely drive, and great on some of the long hills to look in the rear view mirror and see so many other VW’s stretched out behind me as far as the eye could see. The only pity was that there wasn’t a scheduled stop along the way to get out, natter, and take yet more photos – there were so many scenic spots that would have been just perfect!
