The museum followed (still rainy at this point) and some further terrifying volcano tales - the town of Rotorua actually sits within the rim of a volcano. We made the short drive to Taupo late on Friday afternoon. A leisurely wander around town and a fun game of crazy golf (which Anna won with the most ridiculous amount of good fortune) rounded off the day.
Bright sunshine and beautiful views over the lake greeted us this morning. Suncream on, we went on a trek out to the Huka falls, a great walk alongside the Waikato river, with the rapids at the end. We spent a relaxing afternoon at the hotel, taking the opportunity to use the pool and sun chairs.
A short drive tomorrow to Napier and then on to Wellington for New Years Eve.
