Good BBQ!!

We skipped the sheep shearing becus we've already seen it elsewhere. We were able to wander around the farm and spotted alpacas and cows. BBQ buffet was delicious!! Best lamb we had in our entire trip in NZ. There were also vegetables and desserts. Too bad the timing was quite short (about an hour) so we stuffed ourselves 😂 On board the steamship we could visit the engine room. On our trip back there was a live piano country songs sing along session which my mother (in her 60s) loved.

Wonderful Walter Peak and Beaut Barbeque

This has become a favourite of ours when in Queenstown. This time we went for my husband's 60th Birthday at his request. A gorgeous day on Friday 24/5 with a trip on the Earnslaw, topped off with a shearing and dog show, but the highlight - for my meat eating man - was the BBQ! The meat was cooked over proper coals - not a gas BBQ in sight - and tender and flavoursome. The accompaniments were just as great with lots of variety. The desserts - OMG - the desserts were wonderful too, we could have eaten more - if the first course hadn't lured us back for seconds! A great trip, a tasty treat and a sunny day, who could wish for more - maybe having the wife along (me) contributed a bit too - we'll return again for sure next time in Queenstown! :-)
