  Go with Jo's Vintage Adventures have a lot of day trips coming up. Wednesday 15th July   We are off to Little Rive r for a delicious lunch. There will be time to have a look around this historic railway station, and the gallery before returning home. If time allows we can stop close to the Kaituna Quarry where you can still see the concrete remains of a WWII radar station near the lake edge. Friday 17th July           Today I will be taking you to Oxford for a bit of lunch at Cruisy Days Diner.  We will stop on the way in Kaiapoi for a cuppa before heading on to lunch. This cafe is not your standard cafe, it is themed, but I'm not going to ruin the surprise by saying any more. The return journey is via the beautiful Ashley Gorge , an old family favorite picnic spot. Tuesday 4th August    Operatunity Concert is back. Book early as this is always a very popular event. We escort you to the door of the La Vida Centre, so you don't have any parking issues or a long walk from the car park.  The rest of our August trip schedule will be out soon. I look forward to seeing you.   Jo Manson     Owner/Driver If you would like to be kept up to date with our adventures you are welcome to join our email or phone list.
