Coffee time!

I'm sitting in this adorable little cafe right on the edge of the lake. It is a combination of vintage nautical elegance and steam-punk chic. I really like the ambience and the stunning view outside the window.

I adore the chandelier! Here are some photos so you can all enjoy the experience.
In the background of this photo you can see the Earnslaw, Queenstown's iconic boat that travels the lake everyday. It's quite a contentious issue because she is a steam boat meaning she pumps a lot of pollution into the air from burning charcoal. But how could they not have her in action?...she's been here forever and is the same age as the Titanic.
I'm having a latte here. The coffee brand is "Hummingbird"; never heard of it so I might look it up later. Taste wise, the coffee is decent but as to the barista capturing the essence of the latte--epic fail. Unfortunate. The surface was so bubbly and thin I was unable to transform the blob on the top into anything nice.

Anyway, that's all for now. Just a mini update. I'd best get back to the lodge it's gonna rain again *sigh*.

I wish I was there...I worked at the library today. They have reshuffled the furniture (it is quite a change) and I know have to wear a name tag with the district library logo on it.
