So, I'm waiting around Mon (12th) afternoon for my bus to take me to Franz Josef glacier, Jo having left by this time, when two of the guy from Nelson show up; Chris and Ben. They have beer so that pretty much clenches the deal and I stay on an extra night. A good five hours was spent that evening in the spa with the beers before heading to the aforementioned pub. Oh, and I thought it would be a fantastic idea to run into the sea before heading into the spa in order to appreciate it more. Wow that was cold! But it was pretty cool sitting in a hot tub with a beer watching the sun set out to sea with a couple of dolphins riding the surf. Life could be a lot worse.
Tues (13th) morning I was due to go to a knife carving activity a few miles down the road, but when I awoke at 8:30am the head was having non of it. Instead, I left that afternoon, again in the rain, heading for Franz Josef where I was to meet up with Liz.
