After leaving Te Anau, V and I went to Queenstown, which is billed as the "Adventure Capital" of New Zealand.  It is a very pretty place, nestled between the mountains and Lake Wakatipu, which is a long, curvy lake that extends for several miles.  We stayed at a backpacker that had a beautiful view of the lake.  During our time in Queenstown, we went out fishing for salmon on a charter.  The man who ran the charter was a retired police detective, and we had an interesting chat with him about his life.  Violet caught a fair-sized fish, and we cooked it up for lunch.  There's not much else to report about Queenstown, which is unfortunate since this was basically our last stop in New Zealand.  After leaving here, we flew back to Auckland, where we spent 2 nights before returning to the airport to fly to Buenos Aires.  Here are a few photos from Queenstown and the Lake.
