New Zealand

Good  evening all from New Zealand.
Apologies the photos won't upload, I'll try again tomorrow!

We arrived safely and are having a fabulous time. The weather has been mixed thanks to El Niño but it's much warmer! We stayed in Auckland for three nights, visiting the Sky Tower and taking a boat trip dolphin and whale watching...lots of dolphins but no whales on the day.

Our flight down to Queenstown was very scenic and the weather was perfect.

We've had great fun in Queenstown between the showers...although for a couple of days it rained between the showers! Our little motel apartment is perfect with stunning views...everywhere here is just stunning.

We've been up the gondola, came down the luge and walked for miles around the lake.

Sunday was glorious so we went jet boating which was great fun. Afterwards we visited Arrowtown which was a lovely place.

Monday was a bit wet so we went to Cromwell via the Wakarau Gorge...more stunning scenery. On the way home we stopped off at a roadside fruit stall with a beautiful rose garden.

Today we've had a beautiful drive up to Glenorchy, the scenery here was even more stunning...and so like the Scottish Highlands. Tomorrow we're going to Wanaka and Friday we start our road journey heading first for Te Anau, then Milford Sound...so looking forward to that.

Well it's bedtime here, hope you've enjoyed a little taste of New Zealand. Thank you for all the comments being left on my scheduled posts. Got through some DT commenting tonight so will endeavour to visit you all soon.
