Well-earned rest

Steve Robb captured this shot from his kayak of the iconic TSS Earnslaw being hauled from Lake Wakatipu last weekend for her biennial service. The 97-year-old vintage steamship will be on the Kelvin Heights slipway for five weeks as engines and boilers are stripped and fresh white paint slapped on. The Explorer will chug across to Walter Peak until the Earnslaw returns to the water.
