Visiting Queenstown #1 -- Post 412 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)  Leaving Christchurch, we had a ten hour bus trip to Queenstown in New Zealand.  Upon arrival, we had to have our photo taken next to the large fake kiwi bird on the harbor landing:

2)  We took a boat from Queenstown to Walter Peak Station.  Linda got a window seat:

3)  And she was the second person off the boat:

4)  We got to the Walter Peak Station and they gave us a talk about the work on the station:

5)  Linda and Lynda (our great tour guide) had a rest at Walter Peak:

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.
