Random wandering was yesterday’s plan.
It started at the home of Andrew and Abbey where a strange bird call caught my attention. A Californian Quail was perched on a large transmission insulator which is a feature object in their garden.
On the back road between Arrowtown and Arthur’s Point there were lots of the seasonal displays of lupins.
Closer to Arthur’s Point, there is a nice view down the green valley towards Queenstown.
A little time at the Shotover Jet base is always fun as the huge growling engines of the jet boats bring thunder to the gorge. An added feature yesterday was the strong wind which launched most of the sand on the point into the air and into the passengers waiting for their ride.
In the evening we were babysitting the children while their parents went to a concert. It was swimming lesson night and I liked the texture and reflections on the water.
It was a long day.
