Kayaking on Lake Wakatipu , Queenstown
Took gondola up and overlooked Queenstown

Out early this morning headed north from Queenstown to Glenorchy for kayaking on Lake Wakatipu.  Our leader Will provided us and 3 other yakers with a great paddle on calm water of Pigeon and Pig islands.  We landed on Pigeon island for a hike to a vista point high above the water.  There we saw the most spectacular rainbow in the mist on the side of a mountain across the water from us.  

Will recommended having lunch at the Glenorchy cafe where they serve a BLT which was quite tasty.

Driving back to Queenstown there were several photo stops along the very windy coast.  Dinner was a burger, fries and shake from the famous Fergburgers.  Scrumpdillyiscious!!

At dusk it was up the Sky Line gondola to the top of Queenstown hill for a stargazing program.  The program was canceled but there was still a spectacular view of the lights from the city below.
