Cross Country Drive to the Fox Glacier

Amazing drive across some of the most dramatic scenery I’ve ever seen. Just amazing.  Weather could have helped a bit more than it did, but it didn’t really stop us doing anything.  Not as long in the car as yesterday, but seriously more dramatic scenery. But also had to overtake just as many RV/camper vans as yesterday.

Interesting to see the clouds hugging the mountains when we left.  We climbed up over the Alpine pass, and we also saw an aircraft inbound to Queenstown airport that was in flight, but BELOW us (I know we were high, but it was still strangely spooky).

Some great places we stopped at, including Cardrona (where Betsy was thrilled to find Prince Harry had visited) finally stopping at Fox Glacier where, weather permitting, we will take a helicopter ride up the Glacier tomorrow.  Cute little town.  Worth a visit.

Staying at the Heartland Hotel which is right in the centre of the little town.  Had a nice birthday dinner tonight 🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂 with candles of course !!

Haven’t seen a kiwi yet ! 😳

The gift shop below had a big Harley Davidson bike in the middle of it for some reason I didn’t find out !!

Happy Birthday to me 🎂🎂🎂🎂🎂🍹🍹🍹🍷🍷🍷
