We spent the “reason” for this trip – our 30th Anniversary – in Queenstown with a “day off”. No special activities planned, just a relaxing morning sleeping in, some shopping, wandering about town, some time at the beach watching this years sunburn harvest, and so on.
Oh, and a visit to Starbucks.
And a very nice dinner at the Skyline Restaurant, which rests on a mountainside about 1500 feet above Queenstown.
I had to play a touch with the lighting on that one, since it was evening the gondolas were very dark and the city in the back very bright, but you get the idea. 1500 feet, UP.
The view from above is spectacular:
Definitely see larger version of that, and others, by clicking on the picture.
And a good meal as well.
All in all, a good anniversary, and a fine end to our stay in Queenstown. Tomorrow: Christchurch.
(And yes, technically it’s not our anniversary at home yet – international date line and all – so perhaps we’ll celebrate twice. :-).
