New Header Image – Summer scene

It’s definitely summer in New Zealand and we are loving the long days (huge change from when we arrived in New Zealand back in July). The daylight hours are 5:30am in the morning until 10pm or so at night. The temperature ranges from a cool 55 degrees Fahrenheit to a balmy 85 or 90. The tourists, backpackers and locals alike are flooding the streets from all over, and on NYE there wasn’t a single hotel, hostel bed or campsite available in Queenstown, Wanaka or Arrowtown.

The new image on our blog is our view from The Boneyard climbing area just outside of Queenstown. Five of us climbed and swam in the lake for a solid half day just two days before Christmas. The sunset on the night was absolutely spectacular, therefore I thought I’d share the photo on our blog.

Here’s one more, just for fun!
