Good morning everyone, or should I say USA!
It is Wednesday morning and a beautiful day outside. We sat at breakfast this morning with a beautiful view of the mountains and Queenstown harbor. The fog was rolling over the water. It is about 9:45 am and we're just checking emails, etc. before heading out for the day. We plan to visit the shops here in search of blue pearls. We saw a few in Christchurch and they are gorgeous. Tonight we are going on a cruise on a vintage steamship out to the Colonel's Homestead for an evening buffet. The menu sounds yummy. We think we will also see sheep shearing too. We may get in too late to blog tonight so wanted to give a quick update now. If we're not on when you get up tomorrow morning, no need to worry.
We leave here at 8:50 tomorrow to head to the airport and our flight to Rotorua. Lots of things are planned when we get there. We will see much more of the Maori culture in that area. It seems that the Maori people have been treated much better than the Aborigine have been treated in Australia. Should be an interesting comparison to make.
Take care and have a great day, everyone.
