Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki to Oamaru and Kakanui

The name Tekapo derives from Maori words Taka (sleeping mat) and Po (night). Yes, I could certainly sleep the night here! From the main road through town are spectacular views in all directions. The Collie Dog Statue is on the lakes edge near the small church in the middle of this photo. Select the photo to see this view up closer.
