Holidays with the family Part 2

Lake Te Anau , the gateway to Fiordland national park was to be our destination for 6 days as we explored the area. We had a lovely day driving from Kaka Point  To Te Anau stopping at small towns along the way for coffees and photo opportunities. This was Gore a very nice rural town with a great entrance. Salmon country.

Lake Te Anau is a the largest and deepest lake in Fiordland the town is small and caters to holiday makers and tourists. It is the stepping off point for Milford Sound and for several walking and biking tracks. In summer there would be lots of boats I suspect but the town was bunkering down for winter as some of the restaurants were closed. But we found two excellent ones on recommendations from friends.It was very wet and rained most of the time and one photo shows the lake was so high it had submerged a pier.  On a finer day I went for a walk and found these gorgeous toadstools and the colours of autumn.

My family and I enjoyed our stay though as we had fun playing Rummycub, Yahtze and doing jigsaws in between our travels.Next installment with be our adventures on Milford Sound. Bye

    I think a reliable indicator of a happy family is that they can have fun even when they are trapped indoors together because of the weather. You are fortunate, and skillful, to have such a family.
