Yesterday the rain finally stopped so I got to see what all the glacier fuss was about. Fox Glacier is pretty damn awesome.
After me glacier fix, stopped off at Franz Josef Glacier for lunch then made my way slowly up to Hokitika. But first… a stop for a few hours in Okarito, for an awesome walk up to Okarito Trig and panoramic views of 3 Mile Lagoon and Okarito Beach. Then a lovely walk through the bush to the lagoon and back along the gorgeous deserted beach.

Now in lovely Hokitika where I’ll be for a couple of nights before working my way slowly to Motueka. Beautiful sunset last night and a rendezvous with some glow worms who unfortunately though very pretty were not very photo friendly.
