Sunday – Invercargill to Cromwell and Lake Hawea

Invercargill to Hawea

Our little tiki-tour of the South Island started with a drive up to Cromwell Races where All Spice was racing. He came in fifth this time, and here he is working his way up the field.

After the races we drove on to Lake Hawea, arriving at the campsite early evening. We had a pitch right on the lake front with not another soul in sight, and it was idylic. Here’s a snap of the tent on the lakefront, and the spectacular view.

After tea cooked on the barbeque and an early night, I awoke before dawn to the most spectacular array of stars and the milky way stretching across the night sky. With no light for miles around and a crystal clear sky, the stars were unbelievable, and I just had to try to capture it on camera…
