I am trying to blog. I want to catch up with the last few days and write some sort of record - post some photos. I don't want to use up all of my father-in-laws internet allocation for the month, so thought an internet place in down-town Queenstown would be fine. There have been hitches however. It is not ideal, but I shall plough on and see how far I get.
We spent Christmas Day at my brother's with another brother and sister and their families. The weather was perfect (maybe a bit too hot, but I daren't complain about that) the food plenteous and the company a lot of fun.
A picnic table under trees by the town's swimming pool was where we decided to set up Christmas Dinner.
... one hot dog ...
Boxing Day, some of us went for a short bush walk on a track that led us into a black birch forest with a history of gold-mining and forestry.
And my time in the internet place is up. I will log off now. There is a smell of cigarette smoke wafting in from outside. Not pleasant. I am off to meet Robert, at the Rees statue. Time to take in the mountain backdrop and some lake freshness.
It has been a frustrating morning so far, but even so, good to recollect a hot Christmas Day with family and a cool walk in the forest.
