Travelled on further south today along the west coast to Makarora. Stopping on the way at some beautiful lakes. Lake Matheson was one of the. This is one of the most photographed lakes in NZ. Unfortunately for us the weather was rubbish and we didn't get great photos or view but got a postcard to remember what it should have been like hehe.
We arrived at Mount Aspiring National Park late afternoon. I had booked on to go Jet Boating with a couple of others which we were looking forward too. That wasn't until 5 though so we chilled out a bit before then.
The Jet Boating was great. Speeding down shallow rivers (Wilkin and Makarora) and doing 360deg spins in the boat :) was so cool. I got totally drenched as always I was sitting in the wrong spot. Was actually quite refreshing. hehe
After the ride we got ready for dinner and a night of Karaoke with the Stray bus. Was one of the best nights in New Zealand. And yes I did Karaoke lol. Not on my own though and after a few drinks. A few of us lasted till quite late and got hungry and the best we could find was cake!! The walk home was interesting too...being pitch black dark outside it was a bit hard to find our way back and one of the girls insisted she knew the way....until we saw a sign for Queenstown....we went in totally the wrong direction lol Getting up in the morning was gonna be fun!! hehe
