This morning we had the most fantastic breakfast prepared by Conor which we ate on the shores of Lake Takapo. We ate French toast, with bacon and maple syrup. Just delicious and the setting was terrific, the winds of last night had disappeared and we had calm waters and blue skies.
Next step was to look after the essentials of Camper living, the less glamourous part, we found our dump and water station in the Tekapo village and got to work.
Then we set off for Mt Cook village a very scenic journey along by Pukaki Lake of 50 kilometres less than a half hours drive, it took quite a bit longer as we couldn't pass the look out points without stopping, it was just so beautiful. On arrival we took a walk to Lake Mueller and Lake Hooker, a very busy walkway but the scenery once again was spectacular. It was quite sad to see Lake Muller with one very large ice block and several smaller ones floating on the lake having broken off from the Glacier at the northern side of the lake.
We retraced our steps and set up for the night on the shores of Lake Pukaki, another beautiful spot with views of lakes and mountains.
The chefs once again served up a Barbecue with Lamb, Steak, salad and garlic bread.
Not bad at all.
