Visiting Queenstown NZ #3 -- Post 414 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

In March 2010, we visited Australia, New Zealand and Fiji on a three week Grand Circle Travel Tour to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and I took some photographs with my trusty digital camera.

1)  Our major excursion in Queenstown that we did not take was the five hour (each way) bus trip to Milford Sound.  Instead, we stayed in Queenstown and had a nice ride up to the top of the Queenstown gondola station:

2)  The view of beutiful downtown Queenstown from the top:

3)  The view of the lake from the gondola station:

4)  We had a nice dinner that evening in the hotel restaurant:

More on our New Zealand visit in coming weeks.

Unfortunately, I've lost the memories of all the details of this vacation - I know what we saw but can't remember what we were told.  Fortunately, I found my Facebook photo albums from our 2010 vacation with pictures and some captions so all is not lost.  I found that I posted very few photos from this vacation on Genea-Musings.

Sorry you missed Milford Sound. I am sure you don't want to hear this; but of all the places we have visited around the world--that was one of the highlights! There were so many waterfalls coming down the sides of the sound that one couldn't count them all. We had rented a car and drove from Christ Church to Queenstown and then down to the sound, so we spent the night in a motel near Milford Sound.
