Parts of my work definitely has a plus side Yesterday, I collected a client at his high class lodge, where we boarded the helicopter and flew the ten minutes over the lake to Luxmore Hut on the Kepler Track. The original plan was to simply walk down the hill from the hut to Brod Bay, where we wolud get the water taxi across the lake to where the vehicle was, and then drive to Queenstown. However, the client wss fit and able, and very keen to got up to the top of Mt Luxmore, so the hike got extended by a couple of hours! The weather played nicely (though the wind was chilly on the summit) and we enjoyed the hike. The photos are from the chopper, and the map is the route we walked. That part of the day was great. Overall it was v tiring though. I'd started at 7:30, taking people to the start of the Dusky Track, and i eventually got home close to 9:00pm, glad to get a cuppa.
