Happy Anniversary

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.

Gondola Ride

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. :-).

    Congratulations to you and your wife on your 30th anniversary. Not too many people stay together so long these days. Well done. Enjoy your vacation and don’t worry about us our computers will continue crashing till you get back. LOL

  3. Hi Leo,
    Happy, happy anniversary to you and your lovely wife. I confess, I am an even bigger fan now that I know you have been married for 30 years! What is your secret?
    Take care,

    Hi Leo,
    Are you still available to meet up here in Christchurch? (Sent you a response when you first invited it after announcing you would be coming down here)
