|Traveling today. Rain and more rain.
Fox Glacier to Haast, February 29, 2008
We were up early as usual and down to breakfast at 8 o'clock. It was heavily overcast and drizzling or raining most of the time we were driving. First across a wide valley inland, into the rugged forested area and then out to the sea coast. At Bruce Bay we stopped at the beach for a few minutes to look for smooth, oval, white stones which are a tourist attraction. A quick stop at Knights Point lookout was spectacular but not a photo op due to the weather. We stopped at the Haast DOC Info Centre and were impressed with the setting of the building in the wetland area as well as the displays inside. It was lunchtime so we stopped at the bar/café nearby and appreciated the cozy fireplace on the dreary day.
