Central Otago Mirror - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - Mar­jorie Cook

My lotto fantasy today is to buy Lit­tle Mt Iron in Wanaka.

The 27ha out­stand­ing nat­u­ral fea­ture is for sale for $1.39 mil­lion with Ray White Real Es­tate.

This sparked an ex­cited chat with friends about what we could do with the wee moun­tain once we got the soles of our shoes and our bike tyres onto it.

There’s a lot of rabbits to com­pete with. Would I still have the fat end of today’s ‘‘must win’’ $44 mil­lion left to play with after pest con­trol or would I just be pour­ing my mil­lions down rab­bit holes? Who knows.

I’d be char­i­ta­ble with what­ever’s left and give to can­cer re­search, pal­lia­tive care, hun­gry and shoe­less chil­dren.

And I’d go on hol­i­day. A 1000km canal trip in France springs to mind. I will bike and my sis­ter will drive the float­ing ho­tel.

She doesn’t know it yet but it is the crazy sort of thing she will agree to.

What would you do?
