Day 6 - wow, wow, wow!

Queenstown and Glenorchy

I am staying for another night with my friends Here in Queenstown. This morning I gave Bertha a rest and bused into Queenstown while my friends were At work. I spent the morning wandering around enjoying the environment, reading the paper, etc, etc. I also tried to find an optometrist as I have managed to break the frame of my glasses somehow. Anyway, apparently they need some special soldering only available in Christchurch. I then went to a couple of jewelers who I thought could help but no joy,so with a bit of kiwi ingenuity and a bit of blue tac I have a temporary fix. If worst comes to worst I also bought some superglue as a last resort.

This afternoon I decided to take Bertha for a ride down to Glenorchy and back - wow wow wow !! I will let the photos do the talking. Tomorrow it's off to Hokitika over Haast Pass and I happen to know the local copper in hokitika who is going to put me up for the night. Dinner and drinks tonight. A very relaxing day indeed!
