Well today was the best day so far..........after a short walk and drive around the town end of the lake, we drove out to Mount Aspiring National Park (Mt Aspiring is the tallest peak around here) for a helicopter flight which included 2 landings!! A real treat and worth every penny to see the glacier, snow and peaks that only mountaineer normally see. It was was the best thing we have done so far.....the pictures speak for themselves!!
After a couple of half price Margaritas, we rounded off the day at "Ruby's" a tiny cinema with about 40 armchair, tipping seats - real luxury!
