Where did they hide the mountains?
The day in Queenstown starts good, no rain and not a bad temperature. But the forecast is awful, massive amounts of rain expected in Te Anau, a town about two hours to the south-west.
The roof has been leaking before and Michelle was lucky that the rain stopped just before we went to sleep, but this time the whole night rain is expected so we decide to pay the Queenstown branch from Britz a visit and ask them to repair the roof.
The people are very very friendly (again) and an hour later we’re on our way to Te Anau, a town about two hours to the south-west, gateway to the Fiordland.
After saying good bye to the Remarkables we drive along the south arm of the Wakatipu Lake. The view is absolutely magnificent.
But one hour later it starts to rain and by the time we are in Te Anau it’s pouring. Which is really a pitty as this town sits on the side of the biggest lake of the South Island, surrounded by snow capped mountains.
The only thing we see is a “curtain of rain”.
We are very happy that:
1. The roof is fixed
2. We did already do all the shopping in Queenstown
3. The car came with a heater!!!!
So.....we put on the heater, take a drink, fix a nice meal and write!
(the weather is too bad to go outside to perform the sundance for tomorrow’s visit to Fiordland.... of which we are told that it is one of the top experiences of the South Island)
