We passed through some lovely country on our way to Arrowtown, which is an old gold mining town. What a pretty town and very busy with tourists today. There are lots of lovely historical old buildings which nestle side by side with more modern buildings...
We spent a few hours there walking around. Today we were all rugged up and even I had thermal underwear on today J as it was very cold...well compared to Brisbane it was very cold! When we parked the car in a large parking area what should we see just over from the carpark...a sign for a quilt shop J...yep! I bought some more fat quarters.
|The mountain side just near the carpark was just ablaze with autumn leaves|
By now we were thinking of gifts to take home to various people so looking for them took up a lot of time. Both families still have more such gifts to find before Tuesday of next week.
|A lovely old water wheel...|
|See, I'm even wearing my gloves! lol|
As DH and I strolled along I saw a yarn shop...heh heh, so that’s what I planned to visit after we had all had lunch. It also was a lovely shop...it's only been opened for 7 weeks, so very new.
And yes I bought some more yarn...some mohair/wool boucle and some lovely variegated 8 ply.
A little while later we were back on the road and heading for Queenstown...again we travelled through beautiful countryside...more about that next time :-)
