Day 2 - Lake Tekapo

Rebecca's First Blog Entry - woo hoo!

sunny 17 °C

Hey everyone it's Rebecca here. It's the second day of our trip - and we have spent most of our day at Lake Tekapo where we had a lovely time and saw some amazing sights. In the morning we all got up and ready for the day we wore our swimming costumes because we were told there were some very cool places to swim here. As we drove into Lake Tekapo the view was absolutely breathtaking we couldn't believe it! We stopped and took many pictures of all the snowy mountains and the beautiful blue lake and the stoney beach. The lake is so blue because the glaciers crush and grind the rocks - causing rock flour to be formed in the water. This gives the blue appearance.

Once we had had enough of smiling for the camera we all got back into the campervan to head to our swimming destination. When we arrived we went into the change rooms and got ready for something really cool and im not going to lie and say it wasn't! Because once in the pool we realised they were hot spas big ones with little fountains in and seats to relax on in the water. Once settled in the pools something really strange happened when I saw
a girl in year five from my school! It was really weird and funny and it was cool because she was doing the same thing as us travelling round in a campervan! After we had a really nice relaxing swim we all had a drink in the cafe and were on our way. We then travelled to a local church with a really cool view of the lake and got yet more photos!

Later we headed to the campsite where we stayed the night and got some well earned rest ready to face another day!
