To Christchurch tomorrow and our last 3 days in New Zealand.....the blog will be much curtailed when we get to Australia as we are in a camper van for the first week with limited wifi.
The morning started out with some sun and views of the mountains and glacier. It was clear that the cloud would come down though and so we quickly set off to walk the Sentinal path to see the Glacier and it was worth it. Great views. We then walked through the rainforest to Peters pool, a reflecting pool with views of the mountains and glacier valley; on the way back we visited a great old church......St James.....the same as Aston Abbotts and drove down to the beach a few miles away. Later we went for a soak in the Glacier Hot Pools - three pools of glacier water heated to 36, 38 and 40 degrees....
