Day 56 - New Zealand Extended Cut
Old Shotover Bridge
I'm learning to see my misadventures before they happen!
Today was too nice to sit around so I geared up and headed for a lap of Lake Hayes (I took more food, I had a bag of crisps this time)
The Queenstown Trail was nostalgic as it was the views along it that lured me back here after lockdown.
I carried on past "Historic Old Lower Shotover Bridge" and pushed up the Countryside Trail wondering when the lake was going to appear. Another six kilometres!? I got as far as the start of Slope Hill"... "Nah sod it I'd rather go home and have a hot chocolate!" 😁
If I'd have pushed on I would never have had enough time to lap the lake. I would have ran out of water and probably got lost in the dark. Instead I have lovely sit by the river and drew the bridge. Making it home in time for a lazy Sunday evening.
Choose your battles! Choose hot chocolate.
