On our last day in Queenstown we visited a little zoo which takes refuge critters and boy were there a lot of ducks 😂

And peacocks too

A short video I did 😆😆

On our final night I did more crochet

And finished purple mittens

And started a soap bag ☺☺

One of the many delish meals we had out and no we did not eat the chips 😀😀

We said goodbye to Queenstown

And flew to can see the snowy peaks we flew over on the Sth Island

And after a drive with 2nd hire car arrived in Taupo.....Woody was exhausted 😪😪

Plenty of seating

Looking out over the lake

And this seagull road most of the way leaning into the wind 😂😂

Looking out of one of the portholes to the farm we were visiting

The restaurant we were having lunch at later

Now......I was supposed to be riding a electric bike with Paul but after my test run decided forget it 😆😆

So I hung out with the farm animals instead 😃😃


Me and the crazy black sheep 😂😂

Scottish Highland bull

Being on the South Island reminds me of Highland Scotland
