... Mount Doom. From the top, the only way was down! I was extremely excited that the rest of the walk was all a descent. How wrong was I. The first 'hard descent' was down a sand dune. It was like skiing without skis on sand. You had to slide down a very steep rock which caused Tor, Ben and I all to fall over. Surprisingly Scar made it without ending up on her bum which is quite novel. We sat down to have lunch by the Blue Lake which was beautiful. It was about 11am so ...

We managed to finish the walk in 6 and half hours, so we were pretty pleased with ourselves. ...
... way towards Rotorua. We had a very pleasant glass of wine and watched the vast diversity of water sports on Lake Taupo. It is so big it looks like it could be the sea. Walked back to our site - mainly uphill and very hot! Two sites to choose from in Rotorua so booked the quietest (called Blue Lake) further from Rotorua but we will do all our activities on the way in. Looking forward to New Zealand lamb for ...
