      We (and our house worth of stuff) got a taxi to pick up our new camper. Despite being bigger it is a little more of a squeeze than Brutus but with some careful packing we fitted everything in. We have no plan yet – so a quick stop in the Supermarket to stock up on supplies saw us making our way to the Mountains. First night was Lake Tekapo.

They come here to take pictures of an old church by the lake, ( in standard dress or wedding attire) and to go to the Mount John University Observatory to view the stars. This area is designated a dark sky conservation area with no street lighting. It was actually darker by Lake Pukaki last night, but the sky tonight is so clear.

      Finally, after four hours, we arrived at Müller Hut and enjoyed the marvelous view over the Glaciers and Mt. Cook. After a good breake, we descended back down to the valley, because Paul and Suzanna wanted to take off for Queenstown the same evening.
