Queenstown was brilliant, we had a wonderful day!!!
The last winter snow on the way to Glenorchy, and an old mooring at the lake’s edge.
The beauty of the Southern Lakes is something to be valued, enjoyed,
and taken in large doses. we were here in 1986, and so much has changed, and, again, so much is the same.
The clear water, the last winter snow on the tops, and the magnificence of huge mountains, rocky walls and sheer cliffs,
Paradise is further on, and the little shed told it’s own story with the name there
for all to see.
These Roosters just asked to be in the photos, but were not for sale!!!
Treasured by their owner.
The road is all sealed, from Queenstown to Glenorchy,
and maybe even to Paradise, we didn’t go that far , and we found the same spot we camped the last time we were here, at the little bridge, the water’s edge just seemed to be further away from the road now.
What did the travellers think when they first walked this way,
forging a track through the bush and trees. I reflect on all their hard work
and am sure they endured many very cold nights there.
Arrowtown is waiting in the wings.
