I swear that all of the photos in today’s edition were made on the same day.
As they say, if you don’t like the climate, hang around a little and it will all change. I began the day on a solo exploration on the still waters of Lake Hayes, where I found some more of those paradise shelduck ducklings. The day started still and damp, though not actually raining.
From there I went to Arthur’s Point where I watched the Shotover Jet doing its thing. I recommend that you do this ride at least once in your life. You will get wet, and maybe even scared, but it is a real thrill.
And suddenly, the sun was shining. Mary and I chose to go to Arrowtown, just to wander and have lunch in the park. This took us past Lake Hayes again, and it was now a magic mirror.
We were planning to have dinner at Andrew and Abbey’s restaurant, Sombreros in Queenstown, so Mary decided she would spend some time with grandson Otis while I grabbed some shots and then did other things, Otis is like his father at the same age, a fearless imp and without the benefit of brakes or pedals scooted around a track in the local playground.
I went into town and caught the view from a hillside suburb looking across Kelvin Heights and Southward down the lake in the direction of Kingston. As you can see the weather had changed again and the Southern end of the Remarkables are fading into the rain. Never mind, it is good to be with family, no matter what the weather.
That’s all for today.
