So we said farewell to John and Glynis and also to Malcolm and Denise who arrived last night at the same lodgings. (He was the ‘Audley Hot Spot’ chap from way back in Hot Water Beach B & B.) They had been superb hosts and nothing seemed too much trouble. It really has to be a difficult gig being so nice to people ALL the time.
Poor Denise had dropped her phone down the toilet way back at Hot Water Beach, and last night John suggested a final remedy to try and dry it out which was to put it in a bag of rice overnight. He supplied the rice, the bag, and Denise removed her SIM card to get more air into it. Sadly we may never know the outcome of whether this method got it working again, unless our paths cross in the last week or so in New Zealand. I can’t believe I have just written those eight last words!
The drive was leisurely (!!!!!) and some of the views we shall photograph on the return journey on Saturday to Queenstown because we retrace our steps.
And for the first time I think I will dare to show you a sheep photo! They have got the biggest flocks I have ever seen: the same applies to the cows and yes also a surprise, a remarkable number of deer. But if you are going to have venison on the menu I guess…..
Our new host Roger welcomed us to Dunluce, his wife Wendy was elsewhere. Right tomorrow is an early start to Milford Sound, but we are being picked up. Enjoy the bed and enjoy the view. Thank you for reading and your kind comments. We obviously struck a chord with that road bridge with the railway line down the middle of it! Not the sort of thing you are ever likely to forget, that’s for sure.
Take care and sleep well yourselves.
