Two and a Half Weeks
On a couple days off, two other WWOOFers, Jillian and Jenny and I went on a tramp near Queenstown and camped out in a DOC site for the night. We saw the beautiful autumn colors setting in from our view point on the top of a very large hill mountain. It was awesome. I could see the point where I had paraglided from on my third day here. After our tramp, we drove along the most beautiful road where lots of Lord of the Rings was filmed and then headed back to the campsite to be greeted by loads of sandflys. It didn't stop us from having a picnic on the lake for dinner however.
Once back in Bannockburn, we harvested more Pinot Noir grapes and also some Pinot Gris from a different vineyard. Because of the rain coming however, we have the day off which has consisted of reading, puzzleing, and teaching myself the ukulele. Pretty hard day if you ask me.
We will probably be back in action tomorrow and then once we have another couple of days off, Jill and I are planning to do the Copeland Trak which has hot pools and beautiful scenery and takes about three days to hike.
Time for lunch!
