The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 15 Geraldine, NZ

Proving how green we are as rv drivers, we thought we had a water pump problem but had simply run out of water in the tank. Thanks to the friendly/helpful folk at Ahuriri Campground in Omarama, we quickly emptied the waste water & filled up with clean water - problem solved.
Stopped at Poppies in Twizel for morning coffee. Amazing scenery at Lake Pukaki, Lake Tekapo and fabulous views of Mt. Cook.
Next to Mt Peel station and the Church of the Holy Innocents where I do some rearch in the chuch and cemetery on the Acland family. ( Mad Jack Fuller's sister Elizabeth married Sir John Palmer Acland).
Stopped at Geraldine for the night. Opted to go out for dinner when we discover, once again, that restaurant service in New Zealand is not up to the standard we are accustomed to.
