Day 5: Rest Day
Awake at 4
am this morning which although is still early is not too bad a time for
my body clock to adjust too. Last night was great. Went out with the crowd
and ended up drinking a few glasses of wine with the two Mikes till about
11.30 pm, even so I awake this morning, amazingly wide awake at 4 am!
6 am I do some meditation; the stars of the Southern Hemisphere Constellations
glimmering in the night air, a thick frost all around outside. By 8.30
the sun was up, and I had an amazing view from my balcony of the near
foothills of the Franz Josef Glacier peaks all covered in snow and glowing
in the morning sunshine.
Join up with the two
Mikes to walk up to see views of the base of the Glacier from Sentinel
Point - wonderful views of the moraine and the Glacier rising up to the
In the afternoon Kathy,
Derek, Ellen, Sandra and I take the Terrace Walk track through the Jurassic-looking
woods and follow the Glacier River up a nearby hill for some amazing views.
