As we left Te Anau this morning there was a rainbow.
Driving on the left side of the road has become much easier. I drove all the way to Queenstown. I stopped at the viewpoints.
The drive was beautiful.
We dropped off off our car at the place we are staying. How nice to see that we will have a great view.
Queenstown is pretty touristy. We walked around the town for a while. I was looking for a shop that carried merino possum hats because my friend, Gerta, had asked me to try to find one to replace the one she lost. Success! But, alas, it was also a yarn shop. So now I own enough merino possum wool to make a shall when I get home.
After eating lunch we found an ice-cream shop and I tried Hokey Pokey Gelato in a cone. It was better than in Te Anau. Then Jan and I walked along the lake for a while. How nice to get away from the crowds in town.
We bought groceries and walked back to the Pinewood where we are staying. It is very nice here. Each floor has its own kitchen area for every 4 rooms and a deck.
We did laundry, ate dinner, and got organized for tomorrow. I was a bit frustrated with my computer because it won’t connect to the internet. I couldn’t reach Apple tech support tonight. I am glad that I have my iPad mini with me but it has been more difficult to get this post done tonight. Time to sleep.
