Today for the first time, I saw Lake Coleridge and then Lake Lyndon. I’m not sure how, but it came up in conversation that I’d never been to Lake Coleridge before, so a plan was hatched to take a drive there. It’s certainly off the beaten track (for me at least), so I’m not surprised I’ve not been there before. We made it a round trip by going to Oxford for afternoon tea and then back to Christchurch.
The drive to Lake Lyndon is definitely a fair weather road – it’s gravel all the way and it’s not recommended in bad weather.
