As expected, it was pretty chilly last night! We had tucked the blankets in and Niiigel went to bed wearing his toque while Lammie pulled the covers over her head.
Lucky for us, the weather was nice today. In fact, it got pretty warm! The stadium was pretty full. In the grandstand area where we sat, only the cheap seats were less than full. Across on the other side of the field was a slope, which wrapped around the far end of the field behind the end zone for standing room only. The folks there seemed like they were having the most fun!! We sat and watched the Southland Stags play the North Harbour team in their last regular season game. There was plenty of action in the game, and though Southland battled their way through and ran in a try in the final play of the game, they lost 22-31.
Tomorrow, we head towards Milford Sound. We have heard more reports from other travellers that there is snow on the roads out there. Brrrrrr!!!!!
