Downtown Taupo

First up was breakfast at Lavarock Cafe. It was busy there while others were pretty empty – a good advertisement for a start. As you can see, Iggy was in a hurry for me to take this photo so he could start on his pancakes and cooked banana.

Now this may look to you like Рan omelette. This was not just any old omelette. It was an omelette cooked to tender perfection, not dry, not oily, filled with succulent vegetables. Also,  notice the high quality bread, warm and toasty.

After breakfast we took a stroll through the shopping centre. This promotion for Taupo adventure activities caught my eye. While we were on the main street, we spent ages in Prices Bookshop. Wonderfully selected stock  Рreal delve between the covers bookclub-type books. Support this book shop treasure before the mass market swallows it whole. If you are going past Taupo, skip the bypass, park in the mainstreet outside Prices and have a bookshop indulgence.

We spent some time gazing at the kinetic sculpture by the Lake’s edge. As the breeze goes over the red paddles, each paddle rocks or turns in a different direction. It made me think of having a quiet kayak on the Lake. Or perhaps poppy petals?

    I forgot how good the food is in Lake Taupo! Your breakfast looks delicious.

  2. We certainly were spoilt for choice. We had our Entertainment Book with us, so not only was the food yummy, it was well-priced.

  3. Wonderful paintings! That is the kind of information that are supposed to be shared around the web. Disgrace on the search engines for not positioning this post upper! Come on over and discuss with my website . Thanks =)
