... the afternoon reading and then went for a walk down to the Chuch of the Good Shepherd. It was built from stones found around the lake, and with such a view looking out over the lake who needs a stain glass window?! It has been a lovely couple of days here doing very little and has been a great opportunity to have some time out and recharge my batteries as I come into the last month of this adventure. So as I come to the final week of my time in New Zealand... ...

Twizel and Mt Cook

It's quite lucky we'd already done our scenic flight because the cloud was so slow we couldn't see the peak itself, but we did see some other beautiful snow topped mountains, and more glaciers and lakes.
