Jonahan Hare's Diary

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.......
