Lake Tekapo

Lake Tekapo


Emma, 12

The blue lake shimmers, light dancing on the smooth surface like millions of perfect cut diamonds. Beautiful Dark snow capped mountains and calm mysterious forests frame the cool body of water. Tall pink, blue, mauve and white lupins outline the hot rocky shore. The water is cold as I dive under the piercing blanket of blue covering a whole other world of light and dark.

Going to Tekapo is something I always look forward to. It is so special to me and I am never bored, even when it is raining the relaxing hot pools are a solution. Tekapo is definitely my home away from home.
