Lake Rotorua

There were beautiful sunsets last week, but this week, along with the end of daylight saving, the weather has changed. Today the lake is bitter navy blue with wild white-caps, and when the far shore disappears in an approaching rain cloud it looks like the ocean at my doorstep.

The eight-or-so local lakes are dropping in temperature, a couple of degrees a day they say. But swimming doesn't stop when you live in Rotorua. I have a monthly pass to the Polynesian Pools. We are so lucky in Rotorua to have a world-class spa - one of the top ten in the world, they claim. A soak certainly eases the aches and stiffness and there is nothing like soaking under the stars for a good night's sleep.
