Day 9 – Middle Earth   5 comments

Day 9 we woke up early to “Journey through Middle Earth.” We had 5 land rovers pick us up at the hotel and headed out on “safari”.

  
  
 

They pointed out different places around the area where Peter Jackson filmed scenes from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Then we drove the Arrow river

  
And even panned for gold!

 
 
Sadly, we didn’t find anything so guess Mommy won’t be retiring anytime soon.

Afterward we drove the 7th most dangerous road in the world. Mommy has no photos of that. She was too busy hanging on for dear life!

We ended the day with a ride on Twin Screw Steamship (TSS) Earnslaw across the Wakatipu lake to Walter Peak Farm where we were served a delicious meal and given a demonstration of dogs herding.
