Photo of the Day Saturday 30th June 2012 – not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day….” Always remember you’re unique. Just like everyone else. “
Some typical scenery from Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand today. This side of the mountains is in a rain shadow, so during summer, the grass is normally yellow. The area is famous for its wines (especially pinot noir) and the famous wine areas of Cromwell, Bannockburn and the Kewaru valley are not far away. Summer temperatures here can reach 35 degrees, and when the strong north westerlies come, then it feels even hotter. Gold was found in this area in the 1800s, but now it is tourism, sheep, vineyards and fruit that are the sources of income.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell, and not missing the managers there at all.
