The Guy Roe Reserve is a very popular campsite on the shore of Lake Rerewhakaaitu.
The views out over the lake were just stunning, and combined with a flock of grazing geese, and some ducks, made this a no-brainer for us to stay the night.
We paid our registration fee at the kiosk, made some dinner, and then settled in for the night.
It was only after dark that we realized that the rushes growing in the lake were home to what sounded like thousands of frogs, who set about seranading us for the night.
It was an interesting experience - and we certainly felt like we were in a natural environment - but it wasn't quite the peaceful night that we had anticipated.
Even so, we enjoyed our stay. The reflections on the lake were amazing, and my main problem was choosing which ones I should include here...
