Day 14: Rest Day
Got up about 9 am
and pottered around waiting for Sarah to phone but we must have got our
wires crossed and she didn't phone. Did some washing and I sketched
out a double spiral Maori drawing based on a wonderful wood carving in
the art book.
Then walked up to
the head of the Glacier. On the way I sat on the moraine rocks and wrote
7 little short stories about how each of us might get the next Rough Science
invitations to RS4! Later on I made it to the Glacier face but then walked
back a bit and sat down by the fast flowing Glacier River, and with the
sun on my face and an amazing view back down the Glacier Valley I sat
happily for a few hours very happy and content.
Did a lot of good
writing today. On the way back also jotted down some thoughts. Now sitting
in the Glacier Café writing it all up. TV3 starts tomorrow.......
