This morning we first went on an old fashioned steamer boat to cruise Lake Wakatipu. The Ernslaw took us to the other end of the lake to Walter Peak Station ( a sheep farm), a demonstration of sheep dogs working the sheep, and shearing a sheep was done for us. Then we had a barbeque buffet at the homestead house there. It snowed at higher elevations while raining where we were on the lake. Then we took the Ernslaw back to Queenstown and left immediately by coach for Te Anau. We got to the new hotel in town, checked in, Marty swam, and John did laundry. After dinner we had a presentation on avalanch control on the Milford Road in preperation for tomorrow's field trip.
