End of our Holiday

5,10 a.m. sunrise
5.10 a.m.. the sheep are still asleep, and the morning colours starting to show.
As the day moved on, so the colours deepened. 5.26 a.m. and beautiful colours blend together.
5.26 a.m.

5.32 a.m. sheep are awake, and having their breakfast. I enjoyed the morning coffee
,watching them move around, and the morning sky also awakens
to show the beauty of nature’s colours.
5.32 a.m.

A few minutes later, and paler colours show, and indicate time to pack and go to the airport,
6 days of wonder, family fun, and  time together,I feel as though I am in a different world, and maybe that is what Otago  is all about.

Here is our plane, waiting for us to board. Wow!! A 737-300, luxury, with jet engines,
3 seats each side, and so smooth for take-off.I didn’t need to close my eyes or
grab the seat edges with white knuckles.
looks like our planeWaiting for us to boardgoodbye Dunedin
After the first few minutes, the cloud covered all views, and in under an hour we were were at Wellington.
One last picture of what the Otago area offers, luscious deep red cherries. Eat away.!!!
