Arrowtown

Arrowtown is a historic gold mining town in the Otago region of the South Island of New Zealand. It is located on the banks of the Arrow River approximately 5 km from State Highway 6. There is also road access directly to Queenstown via the Shotover Gorge and a third route via the picturesque Lake Hayes.

love this view whereby the snow stuck on the branches

making the snowball by this young kid and getting ready to throw

I had wanted to make a snow ball too..

instead I went shopping at one of the shops

from here, we adjourned to Queenstown

Goodbye, Arrowtown! You are forever in my mind!
