The wilderness lodge was in a lovely location and was very comfortable. They offer walks and talks on different things around the lodge. We did two of the trips/talks and they were very informative and good quality. A very enjoyable stay

Next day and we set off for Lake Moeraki, on the way we stopped at Lake Matheson, apparently the most photogenic lake in New Zealand. It did live up to its reputation as both Mount Cook (right) and Mount Tasman (left) can be seen in it by reflection – beautiful. You can't take a bad photo of it and we have a few. We then headed for our next …

Oh, and hot off the press, it's just started to rain again. Time for some wine, ...
Moeraki means a place to rest. Bob loved the idea and slept in, but I took the 7:00 bird walk. We saw a whole family of Princess ducks with five ducklings up close on the lawn. Unfortunately I had not brought my camera. We took a walk through the rain forest down to the lake and saw 7 different bird species in the trees and black swans swimming on the lake. The fantail was the the most interesting. It spreads its tail like a fan as it flits about the trees. After breakfast we took ...
... half an hour, they let us move on but could not promise that we would make it on time.. As we approached the pass, I thought how nice it would be if they said 3:30 and waited until 4:00 to close it. That is exactly what happened! Praise the Lord. We arrived safely at our destination in the middle of nowhere and found it delightful. We had lamb and salmon dinners that were delicious. During dinner two different ...
