day 5 ...
4 pages of photos for day 5. Follow the links at the bottoms of the pages.
As we check out of the hotel, I get a morning photo of the ocean, directly behind us.
These photos are from a wayside with a public restroom where we stop.
Heading into the mountains. All of these mountains on the south island are the Southern Alps.
I look to my right as we drive, and see something in the distance that looks like a glacier. I decide it can't be, though, because I've never seen one, so how would I know that's what this is, and also what are the odds of just looking over and seeing a glacier.
But it is a glacier! James and I hike up to a lookout point so I can get some good photos.
The trees alongside the ocean on the west coast all have a permanent wind-blown look.
