Dunnett and Daggs Amazing Adventures 2018 travel blog


Match Day 1

First day of games and we only had two games. As luck or fate or sheer lack of any shooters in the team Karen and I took on the GA and the GS positions.

I managed a very respectable 100% in the first half and a 59% second half.. it seemed that if I was shooting well Karen was not and vice versa...

Our bus trip home took us to several of the other hotels which showed us even more of Christchurch and showed us how much we haven’t seen yet . That’ll be Thursdays free day .

Tonight we decided to take up the offer of buy one meal get one free Golden Oldies deal at The Bog Irish Pub.

To say it did not go well is an understatement .... it took at least 30 minutes after being seated to get drinks order taken, another 40 minutes to get order for food taken and 2 1/2 hours after arriving and a gentle reminder that we hadn’t received food nor had we’d been offered another round of drinks or even an apology that we were going to get our meals .... we received a free drink and our meals.... four of us at our table paid and the rest ended up leaving because no-one was even interested in taking their money ....

Catherine and I popped into the casino on our way home - learned the game of Tai Sai and the nuances of Pontoon and Black Jack ready for our flutter with our free $50.

Tomorrow we are off to Hanmer Springs for our picnic day .... water slides and relaxing hot pools ....
