    The bed was comfortable. The spa a bit manky, but we tubbed in it anyway. The open fire was comforting.

    Trev’s birthday dinner was at the Five Stags. Food was great as was the decor and atmosphere. Everything in the place was part of the character including the stuffed critters - pheasant, stags and birds in flight mounted on the walls. Crockery was enamelled tin, can you remember the last time you ate off that???
    We had some more fun with Trevor’s birthday too. We gave him a silly card and then when we went back ...

We made Sam get out of the car and wade through the water in his flip flops to guide us through the flood, hahaha! We stopped at Cape Foulwind so that Sam could see some seals, it's all he's been going on about! The scenery here was ...

Tonight we heard the scariest animal noise snarl/growl/screech, three times, right outside the van, even David was nervous.

    Saturday morning saw five hardy souls heading for the Lewis Pass and the Doubtful Valley in fine sunny weather. Upon arriving at the start of the track, we shouldered our packs and waded across the thigh deep Boyle river. After putting on our boots, we splashed across a boggy wetland then started our trudge along grassy flats and river banks, up the Doubtful river. Just over 2 hours later we reached the first of two huts along the ...

They smell like sulfur, although not to the degree of the springs in Yellowstone for example. There are various other pools that are filtered and cooler, some have massaging jets or are more suitable for children. There is also a giant water slide and something called the Super Bowl, but Holly and I didn't pay for those areas. We spent most of our time ...
