Awoke and opened the curtains to find the surrounding mountain peaks covered in a layer of very picturesque snow. We attempted to do a lakeside walk around some of Lake Te Anau but the rain forced us to go only as far as the bird park which features some caged local birds such as kea (mischievous alpine parrots) and more impressively Takahe which are weird looking birds that emit a sad noise in keeping with their threat of extinction. Lazed away the afternoon before bumping into the Canadian couple at a local bar for an amiable chat (luckily hitting on happy hour).
