Clear water at Lake Okataina


Road trip today and once of the spots we stopped at was lovely peaceful Lake Okataina which is the largest of 4 lakes between Lake Tarawera and Lake Rotorua. This lake has native bush all around it and there are signs up saying no overnight camping, there were only a small handful of people while we were there. Scorching hot day so we paddled our feet in the shallows.

Linking up with Our World Tuesday :-)

sounds like they are trying to preserve this for future generations. It's a lovely view with the mountains and clouds against the water

Oh summer! Paddling one's feet is a wonderful time-honored way to take advantage of a scorching hot day -- and in a beautiful place like that Lake it is perfect.

What a lovely, peaceful spot.

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
