    WOW Werner, you’ve really capture a stunning beauty here mate. This is just awesome and reminds me of the Lake District with it’s puffing boats. Marvellous and an instant FAV for me my friend. Regards, Don.

  • thankyou very much Don – seems like you might find a lot to like on the South Island of New Zealand – lots of lakes and mountains – however, this is the only remaining steam boat – have a look at for its interesting history
