Boxing Day Cruise

On Boxing day we had booked a brunch cruise on the Cruise Cat at Lake Taupo. I am a terrible sailor! I get sea sick on the Interislander Ferry when it is tied up at the wharf. I got sea sick on Venice lagoon when it was like glass!! on our way to Burano for lunch.  It was a first for our tour guide with 20 years experience!

We pulled up to the Taupo harbour and I took one look at the boat bobbing at the wharf and headed straight for the pharmacy to get motion sick pills! I was queasy when we got on board but the pills had kicked in by the time the bacon, eggs and toast arrived. I felt justified in taking the pills when a staff member doing her second season spent most of the trip hanging over the side!

While it was a bit windy (chopping up the water) it wasn’t too cloudy so we enjoyed great views, ogled million dollar mansions and were able to get close to the Maori carvings.
