Two Churches, Vastly Different

We attended worship this morning at St Peter's in Queenstown, NZ, nestled in the heart of the mountainous area of the South Island.  It was well attended, with lots of locals from NZ as well as people from France, England, and of course the US.

This afternoon we drove out in the country to the Otago Wine District, known for their good reds, as well as other wines.  We lunched in the restaurant and tasting room of Waitiri Creek Winery, which was in a little Presbyterian Church that closed down in the 1950's and was moved to the spot.

We had a good wood-fired pizza (cooked outside on an old fashioned barbeque installation) and pumpkin soup (in NZ everything "squash" is called "pumpkin).  Followed it all with a nice walk and a nice nap.
