A few more pictures on our way across the South Island

Here is something funny that we saw and it's common around New Zealand. People rent these vans and drive around the country. This one was painted all funky. I just had to take a picture of it.

The same day we went to the penguin reserve. The yellow-eyed penguin is one of the rarest penguins and they are trying to protect it so it's numbers will come back.

And the picture below was taken at Cromwell, New Zealand. This town is in the heart of wine country.

Here we are stopping for lunch on our way to Queenstown. The guys were doing some wine tasting. I had a little.
This little kitten belonged to the owner's of the restaurant. There were two adult cats wondering around outside. My kind of place!

And here we are finally at Queenstown. Richard and Nicola are in the back. The town is situated on Lake Wakatipu. It was beautiful, but touristy.
