    ... blows all the dust and big twigs and leaves and stuff out of it. (Apparently the alpacas will just roll around in the dirt and bush even though they totally know we have to clean their wool later. So rude.) THEN the fleece goes through 3-5 rounds of washing and rinsing in big plastic barrels, which involved ringing it out in handfuls and transferring it into a new barrel for each round. We've spent multiple days doing this for 4 fleeces... THEN you have to go ...

Watching the log-filled road trains come at us around every bend was quite terrifying but they hug the bends so well it’s incredible and we were thankful they’re excellent drivers. Our next stop was Fox Glacier where we took a break from the bendy roads and walked to the edge of the glacier.

    ... which looked idyllic. We found a suitable spot and sank gratefully to the sand. My attempts to get Annie into the refreshing Tasman Sea were unsuccessful so I refreshed myself on my own. After some sunbathing with people and boat watching we decided that it was time to make our way back.

    ... canceled due to the weather. It was overcast and the waves looked pretty churned up. After seeing that I was not too upset that our trip was cancelled. Stuff happens, and for the most part I try not to get too upset when stuff gets cancelled for weather. There is nothing anyone can do about it, so I just try to be grateful for all the nice days that I have had on the tour. On an 18 day tour - not all of them are going to be ...
