Lake Tekapo - New Zealand

I don't have many cards from New Zealand. The 1st of the these Lake Tekapo cards was one of my 1st from there and it was sent by Adrienne almost 11 years ago!!! Time really flies fast with postcrossing.

Lake Tekapo is second-largest of three roughly parallel lakes running north–south along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Basin in the South Island of New Zealand.

On the shores on the lake you'll see the beautiful Church of the Good Shepherd, where the altar window frames a perfect view of the Southern Alps beyond the lake. The church was built in 1935 for the pioneer families of the Mackenzie district and is still used as a place of worship. The church is a popular photo spot for visitors. - in
