Went for a frosty walk

I think I must have been slightly crazy but the lure of a hot coffee in Arrowtown persuaded me to do some of the Arrowtown Anniversary Walk with a friend. It was quite surreal walking through the frost covered trees by the river (and jolly cold!). We started by the car park, below the shops and walked to the first bridge. It took us 25 minutes return and probably would have been about 2 km in total. The track has recently been upgraded to be part of the Queenstown Trail. The surface was packed gravel and the track would have been about 2 metres wide – so plenty of room if you meet a cyclist or two and a dog! We didn’t meet anyone but that could have something to do with the fact it was barely above freezing point! The coffee at Bonjour was excellent and restored my temperature to blood level!
