Waiting for Nana and Easter in Queenstown

Nana - Welcome to NZ

Nana, Diane arriving in Christchurch. Wish I looked like this after a 15 hour flight!

Driving down to Queenstown we stopped off at Lake Tekapo.

Twizel. The town was built in the 60s for a new power plant, with a view to demolishing it oncethe building work was complete. In the meantime the residents had grown fond of their town and it stayed. Now a place on every salmon fisherman's radar.

Under the bridge in Twizel.

Our beautiful homestay (house swap) with views to The Remarkables and over Lake Wakatipu. Thanks Jen and Steve for a great 3 weeks.

Looking over Queenstown and the Bungy platform at the end of the day.

Easter Hunt overlooking Lake Wakatipu and choccy carnage a few minutes later!

Some Autumn colour by the lake.
