Day XLIV in New Zealand
Sunday 14 December 2003
|We left Hanmer Spring while it was raining a little bit and went to
Nelson Lakes. During the journey it started to rain cats and dogs and
we couldn´t see anything of the beautyfull countyside with its mountains.
We reached Lake Rotoiti /St. Arnaud and pitched our tent at a DOC-Campground
while the sun was shining again. Wonderfull countryside, next to a beautyfull
lake but many many SANDFLIES!!!
Uli fought with the flies but she lost. Frank tried out Spinning for the first time. It´s a special sort of fishing. You have to throw the bait with a controlled, relaxed move.
First attempt: OUCH!
The bait was on the way but it stopped at Franks little finger. Emergency operation by Uli. He tried it several times and it worked.
