    We rose at 8am and had bacon and eggs for breakfast. I repacked our bags and cleaned the room. And Richard packed the car. We ventured out to Franz Josef Glacier for a short morning stroll. The gorgeous path, lined with ferns and trees, lead to an information station before a stony trail to view a bajillion year old glacier! Photo ops at every turn …

    ... I then sat outside while Teresa had her spa treatment and then we both got into the hot pools again and stayed there until we were so hungry our rumbling tummies were disturbing everyone else. Apparently it's going to rain here tomorrow, so tonight we are planning our route to Christchurch. Hopefully with some detours for walks to burn off all these tasty meals - and the ice cream and hot chocolate from the hot springs ...

    ... body heat, and I am beyond comfortable. It doesn't get much better than this! 4/22/14 As I opened my tent door, I did not expect to see what I saw. Snow! Snow everywhere! Large flakes fell until 8 in the morning. It wasn't forecasted either. In fact, today was supposed to be the nicest day of the week. Mount Cook was no longer visible.
