Day 13 - Queenstown (rest day)

And I have actually been resting. 

Well, doing fairly sedate touristy stuff anyway which counts as "resting" in my book these days. :)

After sleeping in to about 7ish I had a leisurely breakfast, wandered into town and did some shopping. 

I also booked tomorrow's adrenalin rush session (more about that tomorrow).

Towards the end of the morning I booked a trip on the TSS Earnslaw to Walker Peak for a barbecue lunch, a dog working demonstration, and a sheep shearing.  

The steamer sailed at 12:00 and was back by about 3:30ish. All very civilised with spectacular lake views and an "open" engine room where you could actually watch the steam engine in operation.

The lunch was excellent, and large enough that I may skip dinner. 

A very pleasant day all things considered. :)
