Our last day in Christchurch was, again, cold and damp. We tramped around a bit but then retreated to:

A) The botanic gardens conervatories...warmer and drier. Very good.

B) The Christchurch Museum...again surprisingly good....excellent stuff on antarctic exploration

C) The cinema. Fabulously luxurious cinema where we saw the latest JK Rowling offering. (The Crimes of Grindlewald). Hopeless - too many characters, too messy a plot, too much bonkers CGI...but it did pass a wet Sunday afternoon.

Today we drove 7.5 hours to Queenstown, which we visited 25 years ago! What an amazing drive which we shared. A lot has happened in that time and a lot has changedin Queenstown. It is still a very attractive place with many tourists (including many from Japan). We got here in time for a poke around and supper...it's good to be back, especially as the weather in much better. It is 5 degrees C warmer here than in Chch, the sun has shone and we witnessed a great sunset over the lake. All good! We have three full days here and will make plans tomorrow....
