Ngongotaha Dinghy

My romance with the dinghy continues… something about a little boat just charms me. Of course, big boats, do to – but it’s not the same. Rather fancied coming upon this one walking along Lake Rotorua last month and took quite a few of it – but I knew I had my shot when those two birds came swooping up.

Ngongotaha on Lake Rotorua

Ngongotaha on Lake Rotorua

This idyllic little scene was a few minutes walk from our motel in Ngongotaha (Non-ga-ta-ha – really, it’s easy once you know how!)

The lake was a bit rough, which didn’t bother the swans (they are tiny, but just to the left of the yellow buoy) or the trout, which were swimming madly, much to the delight of the local fisherpersons… I want this little boat though – just a little something to go toodling out for an afternoon’s pleasure… Or – I’ll just be content with this photo…

And for those planning a visit to New Zealand – yes, Rotorua is a must-see destination, but by staying in a place like Ngongotaha, you can really enjoy the beauty of the area and spend half or less than you would in town. We were only 15 minutes from all the big tourist stuff if we had wanted to go there…
