          Lovely place to stay. Lots of space, clean, all the faciliites you need, and very helpful/friendly staff. And the owner Logan bakes a very nice scone!
          Wifi a bit flaky at times, but generous allowance when working OK.

          The weather, same as what was becoming pleasantly usual. We headed north and soon reached another enormous glacial lake, 'Lake Hawea'. Twelve miles up the side of the lake we turned north west, crossed a small range and met the upper reaches of Lake Wanaka again. At this point we could see 'The Southern Alps' in the distance and continuing north, …

          ... coming out for summer. The girl was local but the guy, Andy, was from Devon! He had a massive ego. About two hours later the photographers were surprised we were still there, and they asked us and an American to be in the background of some shots. So we were there for another hour, until we decided we were so prune-like it was best to leave. We've spent the evening planning the next few days - time is running away too fast! Who decided a month would be long ...

After a little bit of dinner courtesy of our kitchenette we drove round the corner to the Glacier Hot Pools!! It cost us $44 to go in but it was so worth it, we got straight into the 40 degree pool which was steaming! The pools are surrounded by native plants and ...

          Again we were lucky for taking pictures and it did not rain at all. We went back to the car and we even have not noticed that we already had spent 5 hours on the road.
