It was a beautiful morning and I went down to wave goodbye to my new Welsh friends. They would have the fun of descending the Haast Pass in the sunshine.
Then for me the view would be of lake Wanaka initially.
And then lake Hawea. Every corner brought a postcard photo opportunity.
This sign shows my route that day. But although I cycled into Wanaka, my bed for the night was a B&B a few kilometres back in Albert Town.
Lake Hawea, heading towards Albert Town.
