Our original trip to White Island was cancelled due to weather, so Hubby drove us over
to Rotorua for a lunch cruise on the Lakeland Queen, a gorgeous paddleboat.
We had seen black swans along the edge of the lake before, but today was scaups.
While we took a one-hour cruise around Lake Rotorua, we had a lovely lunch buffet.
The food was fabulous and the crew were awesome.
I love the idea that we were on a paddleboat.
The weather in Rotorua wasn't much better, but it was lovely to see the scenery
from a different perspective.
This church on Lake Rotorua is part of the Ohinemutu Maori Village.
You can take tours of different types of buildings but the weather kept us in the car.
