The Waikato is the longest river in NZ. It starts at Taupo feeding from the lake, and ends just before Auckland. This picture of Ava is taken at Huka Falls. The water is really clear and amazing blue in colour.

We are lucky that Steve is such a keen swimmer, seeking out and entering all ocean swims within driving distance. He is now the Australian and NZ Masters' champion for his age group. A great effort–a stomach bug didn't even slow him down!

On the morning of our departure we found a natural hot water spring right on the edge of the lake. Too wimpy to swim in the lake, this will be the first place I go to when we visit next.
