Crossing the river, Blue Pools


Haast Pass was lovely as it always is. Lots of stops at various walks and waterfalls. Stopped at Blue Pools carpark - said it was 10 min walk to the walkway. Was at least 20 mins and then another 20 mins walk to pools. Roland and I volunteered to walk back to carpark to get motorhomes. He walked along the road, I did the track. He was nowhere in sight when I got back to the motorhome and was very cocky when I met them all at the carpark by the track. He later admitted he asked a guy in a ute if he could drop him off at his motorhome!! What a cheat!

Met Dianne and Andy at The Neck, between Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea. Cold, windy night and yesterday, travelling to Wanaka and towards Cromwell, was very cold. Had to bring out the winter clothes. Sunny today, but a sprinkling of snow in the hills and a chill in the air. So much for being February!

Lots of motorhomes around, many rented by young couples. They tend to go quite fast and stick to the centre of the road, so you have to be careful of them. Think they are in a car! Ok, that's the oldies' moan for the day :)

Looks like we'll be able to get the bikes down again and bike along the lake. We are parked right on the lake, which is beautiful this morning. This sure does beat working!!
