... 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 ...

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 ...
