Glenorchy

Christmas but with a difference,  drive along the lakeside to Glenorchy and onto Paradise ! The Stunning twisty lakeside road with views over the bright blue lake Watapitu  to the mountain ranges on the other side. An occasional stop to stare in wonder at the fantastic landscape then on to Paradise along a gravel road and through a stream to Diamond Lake. The Misty Mountains location of  Lord of the Rings location Isangard. Chill by Lake Wakatipu in Glenorchy, take photos, everything is closed for Christmas it’s quiet and well cool. Later we drive slowly back later to Queenstown and a Campervan cooked meal, not much desire to repeat last night in town. 25.12.2013

Lake Manapouri

Turn for Te Anau, take a detour to Lake Manapouri, very scenic lake, its huge. Camping on the shore in Te Anau relaxed, meet the Arizonians again and have a meal together, go shopping for T-shirts. Still buzzing from the morning Bungy Jump.26.12.2013
