    It is then on to the main centre from where we can follow various paths along some boardwalks to have great views of the glacier, lake and mountains. Periodically there is a loud crash as ice breaks off the glacier and crashes down into the water below. We enjoy various views of the glacier, wandering along the various boardwalks for a couple of hours before heading back to the main centre for a bite of lunch, including a tasty ...

    ... watching the mountains and glaciars. Deep blue water - wonderful day, good weather too.
