It was a bumpy flight down. Arriving into Frankton we were forced to circle while the jet in front of us attempted two landings, both of which had to be aborted. We were allowed to land before the jet got a third bite of the apple. The cold sweats had broken out by this stage and I was looking pretty pale so I was pleased to have my feet finally on solid ground!
Frankton has some glorious scenery and I enjoyed drifting round town as well as along the lake shore, seeing the places that are an important part of Becks' family summer holidays.
The service was friendly and the portions were huge. I had food envy when I saw Becks' blue cod fish salad. Three large crumbed hoki fillets sat on top of a huge mound salad.

I love Kiwi food, I truly do, but they do seem to love a balsamic glaze on practically everything and my sweetcorn fritters were no exception. I've got nothing against a balsamic glaze, but it isn't something we've seen so pervasively in the UK since the early 2000s!
