After parting ways with Rob at Alexandra, we set off towards Queenstown and then Glenorchy. Good old GPS took us right through the main shopping area of Queenstown. We were heading for the pedestrian mall at one stage 🙂

Once out of Queenstown, it was a fun drive. We stopped along the way at a lookout over Lake Whakatipu for lunch and then carried on. The road was up and down all the way to Glenorchy but amazing scenery.
We checked in at the Glenorchy Hotel where they have CSC Motorhome parking for $12 with power which is great.
After settling down Rafe, we set off to have a quick look around and of course ended up in the Pub in front of the fire.
In the morning, we used the Laundry here to get through the washing before the forecast rain came.
Later, the weather was closing in and we had an amazing thunderstorm which went on for about three hours. Its amazing hearing the boom echo off the mountains and the ferocity of the lightning was something else too.
It was fun tucked up listening and watching 🙂
After breakfast, we set off for a walk down through the town as the wind got up, the sun came out and the mountains around us looked amazing.
Fiona went for a walk around the Glenorchy lagoon which she said was nice.
Its a nice wee town and interesting to see a few big back up generators around. They must have a few weather related power issues from time to time.
