News from Barbara

 Our members enjoyed a fantastic and exciting trip to the South Pacific.  While in Australia we went to the Great Barrier Reef  and visited Kurands Rain Forest near Cairns, then went to Sydney for a cruise in the harbor as well as a tour of Sydney Opera House.  Next we flew to Auckland to cruise another harbor on our way to a tour of the wineries and surrounding on Waiheke Island.  Then on to a visit of Hobbiton Village before settling for 2 nights in Rotorua.  Touring the Redwood Forest and some thermal mud pools and enjoying a visit to the Maori Cultural Center for dinner and a show highlighted our time there.  Off to New Zealand's adventure capital, Queenstown.  Following a welcome party at the top of Skyline Gondola members chose many exciting excursions including cruises to Milford or Doubtful Sound, Shotover Jet Boat rides, Arrowtown, sky diving, paragliding, and much more.  Some returned to the USA while other ventured on to Fiji for a relaxing end to their South Pacific Adventure.  Snorkeling off the Whales Tale Cruise was another highlight before returning home on Thanksgiving Eve.  It was awesome!!
