Daughters dream about Taupo Caldera, NZ
Firstly, does anyone who lives in Taupo come to these boards? I ask because when driving back from taking our daughter to university in Auckland we had a chat to a local waitress.

The lake was looking steamy - wisps of fog floating off it in the early morning - we asked the local girl if that was normal and she said its normal these days but it didn't used to be like that. Also said that the lake is much warmer to swim in than it used to be (I always remember Lake Taupo as pretty cold water). There was also a very strong smell of sulpher that day (more than I had ever noticed passing through Taupo before). Oh, and she also mentioned that the latest check of the lake bed by the crater is more active i.e. bubbles and chimneys etc.

Curiosity got the better of me and we went to the Taupo Volcanic centre and talked to the receptionist of the museum. She is no expert but must hang with the experts - she said everything was normal - so who knows - maybe just different peoples opinions.

Then my daughter who now lives in the north told me she had a dream last night quote:

"In my dream you, dad and i were driving back through taupo and went on this boat but we had to be rushed to shore cause a big siren went and then a small geyser like thing burst out through the water so we rushed to shore and the boat lady said to go to some hill up the road hahaha so we sped off and then daisy woke me up."

Just putting it out there - would love more input from Taupo locals.

I don't know how to copy it here, but Stan Deyo has a Maori prophecy about Lake Taupo at his website. If you're in New Zealand you should read it. The website is millennium ark.com...click on the "dreams". It's the story that starts with "three gorges dam". I thought it was interesting even though I know nothing about New Zealand.

Thanks, I've read that one. Have stayed in the motel that he talks about in the vision. Think of it every time I drive past.
