New Zealand 2015

Lake Brunner, 8 April


  Driving north on Highway 6, we turned off towards the coast for a boat trip on Okarito Lagoon. This is a freshwater lagoon noted for its bird life and, on the day we visited, its bleakness. †
  We saw some white herons on the water. *
  After crossing the lagoon, we went up a river into the Oroko Swamp wetlands. *
  Eventually, we reached Moana in the late afternoon in unpleasant weather. The next morning was fine, and this was the view across Lake Brunner from near our hotel. *
  We went down to a swing bridge across the Arnold River. *
  From the bridge, there were good view up river ... *
  and down to Lake Brunner. *
  The sky was full of interesting clouds. *

From Moana, it was a short journey to Punakaiki.
