In the afternoon, we drove to the Blue Lake/Lake Tikitapu. There were many families there swimming in the lake and lazing on the beach.
The walk around the lake was excellent. The track circumnavigated up and down and around the lake through lush vegetation of ferns and tall trees. Full views and glimpses of the lake could be seen along the trek.
A swim in the lake at the end of the walk was brisk and refreshing.
