day 5 Where is the time going?
Up early for a beautiful day in Queenstown. Breakfast of a egg and bacon pie. they had all sorts of meat pies. We broke into groups and wandered and took photos and shopped. Then we went up the gondola and took panoramic photos and ate lunch... fish and chips.The food is very British and good. We drove to Wanaka late in the day and crossed the highest paved road in New Zealand. Usually at this time of year, it's not open due to snow, but there's very little as they've had a warm fall. We are getting up before dawn to take our tripods to the lake for photos. Should be interesting if the moon is still up. It seems bigger and brighter. We also have seen the Southern Cross constellation that's only in the southern hemisphere.
