Wandering Wednesday - Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

Lake Tekapo, New Zealand - Mitch and I visited this pretty location on the south island en route to a skiing holiday in Queenstown back in 2006. After having read about the fantastic pie shop by the lakeside, we decided to take a break in this little town - and we weren't disappointed, the area is spectacular and the range of yummy gourmet pies available at this local bakery (the name of which I've long forgotten) provided a tasty lunch!!! There's not much in Lake Tekapo itself but it's such a beautiful location to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Many people stop here to look at the quaint little church which allows for a great photo opportunity over the lake. Like others, we had a look and took the classic window shot before spending some time crunching through the snow around the lakeside.

A couple of days prior to our arrival in New Zealand, there was a massive snowstorm and so the entire drive from Christchurch to Queenstown was white. It was my very first time seeing snow and so I was rather excited!!!! We only had such a brief (8 days) holiday in New Zealand - I can't wait to go back one day and explore it all a little more in depth!!!
