Leigh and I went shopping in Taupo. The town was full of cyclists for the huge annual event of racing round the Lake, some 186K.
The roads near the lakeside were cordoned off for this purpose and parking in town was difficult. There were even hundreds of bikes on the back of BFTs!
We ran our few errands and then walked to the harbour and sat and sat with a coffee enjoying the warm sunshine. It was a beautiful summers day.
It was also Election day here in New Zealand and on the way back to the car Leigh called into a polling station to vote.
In the meantime, I wandered over to the event area of the cycle race where there was a band playing on a huge open air stage.
Taupo was definitely bustling today and everyone was out enjoying the summer weather.
