Anne is all smiles... eventually
Today was glacier day!!!
We woke up, and got out of the hotel in Queenstown at 7:09. Only one short stop and we arrived in Franz Joseph at 11:45 (387 km). Anne and Chris were very grumpy, but got over it after a meal and after we got hiking.
Then.. UP UP UP.
The guides carved out steps as we walked behind them (both up and down).
At one point there was a big BOOM... sounded like an oncoming earthquake, but it was just part of the Glacier falling away somewhere 😊 😊
There were lots of people there from all around the world. We spoke to someone at length from Ireland, and a couple from the Bay area, CA.
we have lots of pictures... We'll see how many get up tonight.... as in... how fast the connection is here in the middle of nowhere 😊
Tomorrow We hang around Graymouth on our way to Westport.
