Conferencing by the lake
I had an Aglow conference to go to at the weekend
and so my GKB graciously drove me
and a friend to Te Anau to attend.
This is distance of several hundred kilometres
which took about four hours including a lunch stop.
Te Anau is situated on the side of Lake Te Anau
and I would like to tell you that this was the view
from our lakeside motel, but alas, it was not.
No, twas this :(
We had a back unit, but never mind, we weren't
there to look at the view from the motel window.
Te Anau is the jumping off point for tourists heading
to Milford Sound and the surrounding area,
so it was interesting to people watch
as I was eating my breakfast. Some caught buses
and others were walking into the Town Centre
with their back packs.
The hotel the conference was held in was really
nice but not so posh that you felt out of place.
Geoff Bear was in the foyer.
On Saturday night we had a dinner and my GKB
attended with me. That's him on the left beside our friend.
Not many men there but we did have
another man at our table for him to talk to.
The food was beautiful, cold salmon,
a selection of hot meats, salads and hot vegetables.
Afterwards there was a selection of cold desserts
that were replenished as fast as they were eaten.
It was too easy to overeat , unfortunately :)
especially when there were things I had never tried
and thought this was my opportunity to do so.
Oh well, I'll just have to watch what I eat now I'm home again.
joining in the parties at:
Have a wonderful week,
take care until next time.
