New Zealand

I had the good fortune to visit New Zealand for a second time this spring.  What a beautiful place with excellent food & wine and wonderful people!  It literally takes days to get there, but is totally worth the trip.  

First glances of the North Island from the plane:


On the drive to Mesopotamia station on the South Island:


Gotta have at least one NZ selfie……


Enjoying the scenery on the one sunny day that I had while there:


I made a new hunting buddy:


Okay, maybe more than one NZ selfie…. This is a much better reflection of what the weather was like:


I was lucky enough to get my first helicopter “lesson”!  Way harder to control than I was expecting!  There is a lot going on when trying to fly just straight and level!


This amazing 76-year-old gentleman took me up in his airplane one afternoon to do some aerobatics together.  After the first Immelmann, we were both hooting and hollering and high fiving.  Not a memory I will soon forget.


And that my friends is a week of NZ in photos!
