The view from our window!

To celebrate ten years at Carey the college gives its staff a weekend away. Barbara and I just enjoyed a lovely Waitangi weekend on Lake Okataina near Rotorua. As you can see from the photo the lodge is superbly situated. The lake is quiet, with only the lodge and an outdoor education centre 1km or so up the road, with many great bush walks nearby.

After a busy and stressful period the peace, quiet and exercise were just what we needed. I was about to write "gentle exercise", except that on Saturday we decided to head up to the Whakapoungakau Trig point, at 756m above sea level, it did give the promised "magnificent views over the surrounding lakes". However, since we are less fit than we'd like the 2 hour ascent (very steep for about half the distance) left us puffing!

On Sunday we took it easy, a couple of gentle strolls, from the .excellent walks in the area. One led to some attractive bush clad waterfalls.
