    ... to keep the sky optimal for stargazing and the astronomers' research at the observatory. It was a very clear day with great weather and I enjoyed wonderful views at the top.

    Coming down from the mountain, I drove to Church of the Good Shepherd, a quaint little building on the southern face of the lake and took a walk around the area. It was so refreshing to be outdoors and breathe in the crisp, cool lake ...

    ... very well. We then watched a third half hour long film about Black Holes which was interesting and explained quite a lot of the science behind black hole theory in relative simple terms, though Ed declared he did not understand a word of it! Lunch in the cafe (Butter Chicken pies for ed and I) then we drove back to the apartment to chill out and see if the weather would get better (it was still pouring and was sleety now). Weather didn't improve, but Ed and I went back ...

    ... water has a strong blue hue because of the high glacial flour content. I'll explain more about glacial flour later. The lake is expansive anyway but has been further filled to facilitate the generation of hydroelectric power, which accounts for a sizeable percentage of New Zealand's electricity mix. The network of reservoirs, dams, canals and power stations in this part of the country is vast. Near the water's edge is a little church, which commands a fine view of the lake ...

    We left Queenstown today to travel up into Central Otago to Lake Tekapo. Before we left we spotted a balloon from our veranda high up above the mountains, someone was having a great flight. We took the Gibbston Highway towards Cromwell, where we left highway 6 to join the road towards Christchurch, driving alongside the Pisa and Dunstan Range of mountains and Lake Dunstan, then on through Lindis Valley and Lindis Pass. We stopped off at a lookout as ...
