Which stretch of water shall we head to to­day?

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

South­ern­ers are spoilt for choice when it comes to ac­tiv­i­ties in and around the water. South­land is a boat­ies par­adise. For stun­ning lakes and fan­tas­tic scenery look no fur­ther than Manapouri, Te Anau, Queen­stown, Wanaka and Cromwell for a day spent on the lake or at its edge re­lax­ing with a pic­nic lunch or fish­ing rod in hand. Cer­tainly there is noth­ing more re­lax­ing than sit­ting in the shade of an um­brella watch­ing the ebb and flow of the water and the range of ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place on or un­der the sur­face. Lit­tle ones en­joy pad­dling at the wa­ters edge, whilst the older chil­dren pre­fer to get amongst it, swim­ming, kayak­ing or for the more ad­ven­tur­ous; water ski­ing, to­bog­gan­ing or wake­board­ing. How­ever you de­cide to spend your sum­mer, when it comes to ac­tiv­i­ties in­volv­ing water, it is im­por­tant to play it safe.
