The campsite we chose was on the Rangitiki River so in the morning Zhoel went fly fishing, while I finished my current murder mystery. We meandered our way toward Taupo, taking our time to check out other rivers and lakes. We stopped in Turangi briefly and drove from there around the lake. The views were spectacular.
In the evening, we stayed with Charmaine and Andrew. We had a movie night with pizza and cookie dough ice cream! We watched The Revenant; it was violent, but worth watching. It was great to have a chance to see Charmaine and Andrew again before we left the country. Our visit was excellent!
