The whole of today was spent on Highway 6, or just off it, in the rain. After such a scorcher yesterday it seems impossible that the weather could have changed so dramatically.
From Lake Wanaka we drove up the Makaroa River valley in the increasing drizzle, stopping at Blue Pools, where there was a very wobbly suspension bridge and some fantastic deep, clear pools in the river.
A bit further on we stopped at Ship Creek for lunch; the rain had slowed down to drizzle again so after toast and jam we tried to go for a little walk along the shore, however the sand flies soon had us heading back to the van. We’ll have to get some better insect repellent while we’re on the west coast.
We stopped again at Bruce Bay; Dave made a penguin out of pebbles
