Another full day

We had a great day on Franz Josef Glacier - lots of photos and video evidence of us climbing through ice crevasses, over pools, across the glacier. The helicopter ride was impressive!

So odd to spend the day on the ice, and the evening on the beach - we arrived to Hokitika at 6pm, right before sunset. We are staying at a lovely BBH called Birdsong, and the manager/owner Neil is a blast! After a tasty pasta dinner Heidi and I cooked, we took a stroll down to the Glow Worm Dell. Like tiny little stars shining in the fern covered grotto, although it's from a mucous producing fly larvae. Still interesting, and now we are relaxing in the lounge drinking wine and playing games.

Tomorrow we'll spend a little time in town shopping for jade, checking out the kiwi exhibit, and just walking on the beach. Then off to The Pancake Rocks and then on to Arthur's Pass.
