... to grow a crop). Oh well.
On this part of the return trip, I got to sit up front, and couldn't believe how much more one could see, rather than in the back. I want to be a helicopter pilot!
Back on the ground, we were taxied back to the apartment and chatted with the driver. He was from the UK and in his late 60s. One thing he mentioned, which I thought was very poignant, was that, "The sun's too far to worry." This was spoken in the context of being older and ...
I have to say, it was delightful to have a morning where we could move a bit at our own pace. After a late breakfast and a little time to catch up on email ( thank heavens we bought the international data plan) I chose to go on the jet boat ride on the Dart river while Jerry, like about half the group, chose to hang at the hotel and spend some time in Queenstown.

We got to the top where there was a lake but we could not see more than a meter in front of us, so we did not go any further. The rest of the day we just took it easy and prepared for the hike. We started of the Kepler hike pretty strong and energetic. The first day was 15km to broad bay which took us 4.5 hours. It was mostly flat terrain through the trees. We ...
The drive down to Queenstown is long and not much fun with the weather at the start. We cross the one-lane bridge over the river, and are amazed that the water level is a couple of metres higher compared to the day before! We get to Fox and learn to our relief that the Haast Pass is open, but we know the roads around here can be sketchy, meaning the weather will impact on our schedule – and it's a long old drive anyway, scheduled to take at least five hours ...
