It has been a long dry summer.
The grapes are ripening.
The blackberries gleam and say "pick me".
The Kawarau River is emerald green.
To get a peek at the rapids and the rugged Otago Landscape...
Come, walk with me.
Through the vineyards.
Sweet Briar rosehips are everywhere.
Rosehip syrup - a rich source Vitamin C was given to most NZ babies until recently.
The seed time and the harvest...
Some Peregrine Wines Riesling is coming home with us.
Generous landholders like Peregrine have permitted access for the Gibbston Valley Trail on their property.
I applaud their generosity.
Further along the trail is the Kawarau Bungy Centre.
You are welcome to jump.
and take your photo.
Another lovely day on the Queenstown Trail.
