Location: Mount Cook - Lake Pukaki, New Zealand

MapFeb 7th Lake Tekapo/Mount Cook/ Lake Pukaki. Couple of minor glitches. Last night the motorhome house battery died leaving us with no lights, water, loo flush - nada. On the plus side Lake Tekapo is a dark sky reserve so the stars were spectacular. First thing this morning got onto the hire company and they found a garage for us in Tekapo and we visited the church of he Good Shepherd while they fitted a new. battery. Drove up to Mt Cook Village scenery was spectacular but the world and his wife were there and in the end we couldn't park to do the walk we had planned so headed back to Glentanner Park by Lake Pukaki and had an afternoon in the sunshine instead. Caught up with a few chores while we were at it. Absolutely freezing last night (heating kaput as well) scorching today. Hoping for another fine day tomorrow.
Struggling to get photos up as the wifi has been poor will try again later
