So we are back in the warmer climate of Auckland (well 13/14 degrees is better than 1/2 degrees of Queenstown). Seems we arrived just in time, Auckland Airport is currently closed due to the lightening storm we are experiencing.
Daphne and Jacqui appeared to enjoy their tea earlier this afternoon.
They even had an egg timer to show how long the tea should steep before taken the tea leaves away.
A great day yesterday spent on Bob’s Peak, overlooking Queenstown. To get there you have to travel on the Skyline Gondola.
I was not impressed with Tony beating me on the Luge, by default I might add as a women and some kids blocked my path coming to the last bend.
Winning the Luge wasn’t enough though, Tony then decided he should try a quicker way down the Peak, luckily the elasticated rope kept him ‘hanging around’
Great day out on the TSS Earnshaw from Queenstown to Walte Peak. We saw some sheep shearing before enjoying a gourmet BBQ.
Great view of the ‘Remarkables’ as we travelled back into Queenstown.
Great view of the Westpac Stadium as we took off this morning. Home of the first Lions win this tour.
As we came into Queenstown, some great views of snow on the mountains.
Tony and Jacqui socialising, again!
