3rd March Monday
Drove to Franz Josef glacier via the white heron sanctuary at Whataroa (no birds at all) then went to Lake Mapourika where we had lunch at a lay-by with a jetty . We continued to Franz Josef where we stayed at Rainforest Holiday Park which was a really nice site surrounded by rainforest. We went for a walk around the town and treated ourselves to T-shirts. Then back to the campsite for a game of scrabble and a glass of wine. We had dinner and watched a film in the lounge on our tablet, we watched '12 years a slave' a very sad film.
