      ... s looking much fresher now. We called in at Haast, a little village happy to poke fun at itself by thanking tourists for visiting its 'Central Business District', before pulling over at lookout point high above the Tasman Sea. The rocks scattered in sky blue shallows looked like a scene from the tropics. After a long afternoon's driving, we arrived in Fox Glacier Township in time to make dinner. Our last treat of the day ...

      ... dark shingle. The only white part was the exposed face from which the icebergs are calved at the top end of the lake. Geoff later told us that the glacier is 200 metres deep where it meets the water, of which only 30 or 40 metres show above the water line. Penny's wonderful tour next took us for a peek at the Mueller Glacier and the lake that it flows into. The Mueller Glacier has no white on show at all and is buried in a thick layer of shingle. The sun was still shining ...

      The beauty about these rock formations is they are totally hidden from the main road. We had to drive 4kms down a dusty dirt track to get there and even when we parked up they were not in view. As we walked and rounded the first corner we saw some spikey rocks towering above us but didn’t recognise them as the picture on the postcard. Another couple of hundred meters and then ...

      ... damn New Zealand, think ahead and build 2 lane bridges! We've probably crossed about 40 - 50 of them so far. And given the number of tourist cars and RVs it's time to do some bridge building. Again if that's my biggest complaint, I must be in paradise. Each day we're amazed at the sheer beauty of this country. It just might be the most beautiful one I've seen. I say that because of the different geography around each corner. If you ...

      ... again!!'.

      In the afternoon we chilled out again at our hostel rooms and then went to the hot pools where there were three pools at 36, 38 and 40 degrees centigrade. Emma was very clever and worked out that we enjoyed the coolest one as it was below our body temperature and so we did not sweat. To avoid a manic rush in the kitchen again we had an early dinner, which was much more stress free! That evening friends from the bus behind us arrived at the hostel ...
