Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Photo of the Day Wed 27th June 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day…..” Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?  “

Another New Zealand photo today and a typical rural scene, again near Lake Wanaka on the South Island.     This stretch of road was part of the annual Wanaka Challenge Triathlon course, a course which is now famous for giving competitors great views both during training and during the actual race in January.     Not a race for the faint-hearted though, as it consists of a 3.8km swim in the lake, followed by a 180km cycle through the hills, and then a marathon run (42km) after that, and all in the same day.  The winning time is around 8 hours 35 minutes.

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell, and very happy not to see the managers there again.
