Mt Cook

sunny 11 °C

Woke up this morning and got organised, the boys went for a game of mini golf while us girls went into town to have a look around the shops at Queenstown.. very expensive place but still nice to have a browse, Wendy and I picked up a couple of things but were pretty good.. stopped to have some sushi for lunch and the boys met up with us as they had finished mini golf. We then went to the bungy shop and Wendy and I bought t-shirts that said we were too chicken to bungy LOL
We then decided to head to Mt Cook and see what was there! The drive there was about 2 1/2 hours and the scenery was once again gorgeous. It was freezing cold though and we were enjoying being in the car and out of the cold. The highlight was this gorgoeous lake with aqua coloured water.. just beautiful.
Arrived at Glentanner Park where we were staying and realised we were very isolated and was curious as to what was in the village of Mt Cook.. soon discovered there was not much!! The boys were devestated to discover you could not buy beer in the whole area LOL or rather you could at $8 each at the Hermitage hotel so no drinks for the boys tonight! We did a 15 minute walk up a mountain in Tasman Valley after going down a long bumpy gravel road but the view was worth it and we got to see glaciers so that was pretty cool.
We were all pretty shattered from the day and so decided to have a quiet night in our rooms.. have reorganised the ports and am feeling a bit more organised. So that was today.. back to Christchuch tomorrow for 2 days before we get home :(
