We left Rangiora around mid-day, and headed to Cave, a small town in Canterbury, via the scenic route.  This took us past Lake Coleridge.

There was a strong wind blasting the river – in the photo below you can see the dust being whipped up from the river bed in the distance.


We arrived in Cave and asked a farmer if we could camp in his paddock.


Next to the paddock was a beautiful, privately owned, church.


There were huge mushrooms in the paddock, and the temptation to cook them was just too great.  However, they ended up not being for eating, as they were riddled with maggots.
