I wake up stiff and sore after yesterdays tramping to a glorious sunny day. Not suprisingly, all I can be bothered to do today is visit the Blue Baths. These Victorian baths are famous in Rotorua and occupy a lovely Victorian building in the middle of the Government Gardens. The old fashioned outdoor pool is a perfect temperature for cooling down on a hot day, without being too cold. They also have a deliciously hot spa pool where I bathe my weary muscles. I’m quite suprised to find the place completely empty, me the only swimmer in sight, but it’s still quite early in the day.
After my swim and spa I laze about in the gardens reading a book before catching the afternoon bus back to Auckland from where I will be flying home soon.
