We are making our way northwards but still have sightings of snow - on Mount Cook today as we came across from Queenstown to Lake Tekapo. Tomorrow I am going to the exhibition part (oh, and the shopping part) of the quilt show in Timaru and hoping to meet up with Yvonne and the lovely ladies I met in Picton. On Sunday I am doing a miniature quilt workshop. The weather is still gorgeous and forecast to last for a few more days at least so I hope Al will find something lovely to do on Sunday.
We enjoyed our brief visit to Queenstown, a very, very busy place but with loads to do - not all involving leaping off or out of things. We actually spent our day yesterday tracking down the locations of some of the photos in a 1930 photo album of somebody's trip to NZ. We bought it at an antique auction a couple of years ago and it's been a little mission. We had a successful day so I might eventually "write the book". I think we would like to spend more time in the Queenstown area, not necessarily in the town itself, on another visit. We keep thinking that. Even though we've been so fortunate to have three months for our trip it just seems to go so quickly. I suppose we're doing more here and seeing more than we have done at home! We keep querying things about previous trips too. It's all very well keeping holiday diaries, I need to have them with me on subsequent trips!
We've just heard the General Election is to be on 6 May, now there's a surprise! Of course we'll just miss it so whoever gets in, it's not our fault.
Love to you all xx
