Fishing and Relaxing

The day after the Tongariro Crossing J and A embarked on an all day guided fly fishing trip while Kara and I spent a relaxing day in Kuratau.  The boys enjoyed their trip despite only half catching one fish.  They loved their guide Brent (perhaps a little too much) and enjoyed the beautiful weather and scenery.  Kara and I spent a leisurely morning in our chalet before heading out for a brief walk along Lake Taupo.  Our vineyard chalet was amazing as we were literally steps from the vines with beautiful views over the grounds.  We then had lunch and a long chat overlooking the lake at Oreti Village Resort.

 After picking up and cleaning up the boys, the four of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Lakeland House complete with lamb, pate, and a beautiful view. 

Lakeland House...did we eat on the patio??

I am a little concerned about the loving Brent comment. It sounds too much like a line from the movie Deliverance. Hey, at first I thought you and K were having satay, but it looks like some kind of Kiwi Fajita. What is that?

I think what you are referencing is just grilled bread with dips!
