Day Eight - from Lake Tekapo to Oamaru

I’m starting to get way behind doing the blog as you can see, not enough hours in the day! Having too much fun to be sitting at the computer for too long and wifi is very intermittent. These photo’s are my favourites so far, prepare to be absolutely gobsmacked!


Church of the Good Shepherd, Lake Tekapo


Mt Cook

It only took three goes with the camera timer, 10 seconds is not enough time to scramble over rocks at my age!

The view from the Hermitage Hotel


What looks like snow is actually a tiny spongy spreading plant all over the tundra.

Lake Pukaki

Dry river bed, we passed dozens of these, it’s been a dry summer down this way.

The Benmore Dam, we weren’t able to stop right at the top because the carpark was taken up with a filming crew, we were hoping to bump into Robert Redford but no luck there, bad luck for him!

The sheep that got away! I don’t think I’ve ever seen brown sheep before, there are heaps of them down here, all shades of brown and some with white faces.
