The weather is lovely and we are hungry. So, lunch time. We have plan to have a picnic at Lake Tekapo and so we headed there.
Lake Tekapo famously for their Lupins. You will always have pictures of the lake with Lupins and one of the picture also become my wallpaper. Now, I can get my own pictures of the lake with Lupins for my laptop's wallpaper.
We have cold rice again, but with the view, it just worth it. After that, we have some time to spare and photo time begins.I tried to 'slide 'some rocks at the lake but I lack of skill. I even fell after throwing the rock. I have picture to prove it!
After that, we went to the famous Church of the Good Shepherd. It was situated on the other side of the lake. Boy, there are so many people there and more Lupins. It was a small church that was built in 1935, the first church to build around here.
Again, I still cannot tell you how much I adore Lupins, it just becomes my second favourite flower, where the first one is of course Tulips. It is quite hard to have photo sessions by ourselves as tons of people also like Lupins. So we need, to walk around to find a place with less people.
Then, we continue our journey to Mount Cook. At one time, I'm as a navigator and my friend is driver while chitchatting and suddenly we saw the bluest thing as eyes can see.We are just gasp as we saw Lake Pukaki. It just so blue and take our breath away.
Lake Pukaki is the largest lake in New Zealand. Actually, until we almost arrive Mount Cook, the lake is still there, I mean it is huge. And why it is so blue? because it is from glacier. I can just imagine the coldness of the water there.
Of course it is another photo session time. With breathtaking view of snowy Mount Cook and bluest lake, who can resist?
After a while, we continued our journey to Mount Cook and spend a night there. I would update about Mount Cook in my next entry because it is one of my favourite experiences in New Zealand. If you want to know why? Stay tune!
