Now we are in North Island, having taken the ferry accross the Cook Strait from Picton to Wellington. After seeing another branch of husband's family we travelled north to Lake Taupo, which is New Zealand's largest lake, then onto geothermal Rotorua where we stayed next to the lake photographed below. If you look carefully you may see the steam rising above the beach. What the photo does not show is the distinct smell of sulphur around the lake.
I know that smell...our local volcanoes are active at the moment and it's not a good moment to visit if you have any problems with your lungs.
Fly - the smell was not too bad and fortunately neither of us has problems with breathing.
Fantastic!...not missing much ere, wind and rain,rain and wind.
Thud - now at our return stopover where it is cool and damp. Soon we shall be back to the wind and rain.
