It was quite quaint and well worth the visit. Plenty of souvenirs, different things to see and good cafe's.
This afternoon we were booked on a helicopter flight over 'The Remarkables' mountain range. When Ben checked in at lunchtime from Arrowtown he was asked it he wanted to upgrade for no extra cost for a different flight. Needless to say, he said yes.
On the way to the airport we passed Lake Hayes. I have been waiting to get a shot of a lake that was still enough to mirror the mountains - here it is:
On to the airport and we were on a one hour flight to the Mt Aspiring glacier - not just flying over it, but landing and walking on it. On the way there I got to sit next to the pilot. The views were just magnificent so I will let these few pics (there were many, many, many more) tell the story.
What a week it has been, but tomorrow we head home - to recover!
