      We left Queenstown and headed to Dunedin, a fairly quiet drive with not many stops apart from a big hydro electric dam at Clyde. Nigel was surprised that there were not more pylons coming out of it as it supplies 10% of NZ power, I reminded Him that that is only about 600,000 people. We arrived at Dunedin where it rained and rained some more so we …

      Our steaks went down a treat, nom nom nom. What a great way to end another prefect day.
