So a couple of weekends ago I took my boy up to lake lyndon.
Lake Lyndon is a large Tarn/ Small Lake on the way to Arthur's Pass in the Southern Alps.
It is currently very low due to the droughts we are experiencing
When we arrived it was blowing a moderate NW wind which built to gale force gusts. (The solar panel was blown off my roof)
Over Night the wind was that strong the teardrop shifted slightly!
It was snug inside.
Inbetween gusts wee man and I looked for a bunny, it was too windy to fish
On Saturday Morn we woke to a nice calm morning, so went for a walk and shot a duck
(Entree for my friends that night)
We also set a dozen possum traps
We went fishing then the southerly hit.
Gale force, freezing wind
Woke up to sleet and a small amount of snow
Took the wee fella out and checked the traps.
Caught 1 possum which we plucked for his pocket money
We packed up, and went to the bealey hotel for lunch
We were the only people there
Then drove home to stop in the snow for a bit
Here are some pictures, sorry I forget to take photos..http://s413.photobucket.com/user/glenndscott/slideshow/Lyndon%202016
