Where I stayed
Free camping on lake shore
What a sunny morning to pack up after popping into Te Anau for groceries. The great road from Te Anau made for a stress-free drive for Bruce (well for awhile anyway). We stopped at Fairlight Station for lunch but decided it was too exposed to camp there and carried on past Kingston to free camp on the shores of the lake (about 5kms north). We set up camp with a view to die for – straight down the lake with bellbirds singing in the trees above us. Other vans came in so plenty of people to chat to. One couple was from Kent and travelling around for 2 months here. Quite a few were 'Wings' members so caught up on good spots to stop at.
SatIt was a quiet night traffic wise but very windy in the trees above us and the lake had heaps of whitecaps this morning. We went off to go on the 10am Kingston Flyer trip and it was fine and sunny by the time we left the station
