Shallow Bay Hut

Fiordland National Park

Basically a big shed on the sandy shores of misty Manapouri. Situated beneath tall trees, it would be idyllic except the giant mosquitoes that fly by night. (And local waterskiiers that buzz around all day!). Note: water supply is from lake and should be purified.
