Day 13 Franz Josef to Greymouth

There is no point coming to Franz Josef without seeing the Glacier so we made the 90 minute journey up as far as we could to see the glacier. It was quite hard work- but plenty of calorie burning!!!

Alpine parrots greeted us in the car park - quite sociable creatures!

Back into Franz Josef we finally got to see some Kiwis in the wildlife sanctuary.  Bought Flo a 'talking' kiwi (which she did not appear to be impressed with when we showed her on Skype!)

Then went for lunch at the Speights bar where we sat outside in the chilly sunshine!  

Then it was time to move on towards Greymouth - a seaside location passing through fabulous woodland scenery on the way!

The beach at Greymouth could be described as wild but beautiful! The boys enjoyed skimming stones as usual!!!

More Top Gear on the iPad seemed to be the order of the day !

Hard work getting there but it was worth it!
Not able to take photos of the real Kiwis so this had to suffice!
