... to the South island. Rainy Travel Days The next two days pretty much turned out to be travel days because of a bit more bad weather. We did stop to spot seals at Cape Foulwind, (not sure if the name has something to do with the seals or not?!), on our way to the port town of Westport.

As we were turning in, a noisy, squawking bird was making itself heard a few dozen metres away. There is a good chance that it was a Kea, the alpine parrot that lives in these parts.

... all you can war pizza in the evening which was of course a challenge. A girl on the glacier bet I couldn't eat 14 slices to that we the target. I easily could have done it if it wasn't for the chip and garlic bread to start, but I wasn't going to miss that!! Later I ended up in a frozen t-shirt competition.
