So I went on the short hike (only 250 feet of elevation) and while my lungs complained a bit I made my way through it, hopefully over the worst of this COVID rubbish and can start to enjoy the rest of the holiday.

Tasty burgers and we were looked up and down by the Hell's Angels bikers that were in there when we arrived 😁
Looks stunning scenery. Envious. Hope you are feeling better,

There are still some pretty parts of Queenstown, the rest presents to me as a burgeoning sprawling metropolis crawling with human ants and a blight on a once beautiful landscape.

View from my 22nd floor room at the HI Express City Rd Melbourne (the joys of snagging the IHG status match to Plat Elite from Hilton Diamond)

Walked into Southern Cross this morning, this caught my attention:

Now off to the Saints v North Melb game at Marvel Stadium with @serfty and others, a first for me (AFL game in Nelb)

There's a chance it will be ready for my next trip in August.

We need 14 columns but apparently that's not a good number so now we have 15 columns.

Balcony in front, living room, 2 bedrooms (one for wife, one for daughter), Thai kitchen and a bathroom. We also have a standalone garage for my golf transportation.

Chok dee....

always a nice view and reminder that nearly home. On another topic, waiting for more horse pics (or have I missed them?) :)
Horse pics? 🐴 Or house pics? 🏠
I haven't posted any in ages. I've just been so busy. And landscape drama... I'll have to sit down and do an update at some point...

The view from my 'taking it easy' for the last few days office.

First up...... some bush plane flying in Fairbanks.

But of course the trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to the North Pole....... where every day is Christmas!

After an overnight stop at Delta Junction (umm....... only really stop here if you really have to!) it was a long drive to Valdez, so that was broken up with a hike out to the Castner Glacier Ice Cave.

I played Gassan Panorama before my daughter was born when it re-opened. Now it has matured into a stunning golf course.

Water in play on every hole. Not a difficult golf course. Had a leisurely round in 2h 22m today made all the more easier with 11 pars.
