Paddling on Lake Te Anau
I was going to go for a run today, but my foot is still a little swollen from something I did to it on the orienteering on Sunday, so I decided another day's rest would be good for it. Kanche's not able to run much anymore due to arthritis in her left arm, so swimming is good for her, so I decided to go for a little paddle on the lake, which was very calm today. Kanche swam well, and after a few hundred metres, I helped her into the canoe. I got a bit carried away after that, and paddled right across the lake to a beach near "Hidden Lakes" at the base of Mount Luxmore. There are some tracks there some where, but I didn't have time to look for them. The paddle back was just as pleasant - a bit of a northerly breeze came up, but nothing major; just caused a slight drift south. Kanche had a another swim before getting back into the boat. She enjoyed the afternoon as much as me I think.
