New looking old, historic New Zealand
Thought for the day…” It isn’t premarital sex if you have no intention of getting married.” (George Burns)
“Dreams are not what you see in your sleep. Dreams are the things that do not let you sleep”.
Nice photo of the historic Cardrona Hotel, Otago, New Zealand for the photo today. Cardrona lies about 25km from the town of Wanaka, on the mountain road to Queenstown. Cardrona was originally a gold rush town which grey up in the 1860s. The historic hotel in the photo was used in advertisements by the Speights brewery in New Zealand. Nowadays it is the nearby Cardrona ski area which attracts tourists, although now that the road to Queenstown is sealed all the way, then the route through Cardrona is much busier. Occasionally you still see people panning for gold in the nearby river. The photo was taken in colour, then selectively changed to black and white.
