A little detour on the way to see some glaciers.

The scenery on the way....


We camped outside of the town of Fox Glacier right next to the Tasman Sea.
Our picnic dinner.

Watching the sunset over the sea.  It was a beautiful evening.

 The next morning that we got up really early to hike three hours to a resident seal colony.  Along the way, there were many other things to see.

The remains of an old gold mine.

 A tunnel.

 The seals!  Sunning on one of the big rocks.

Beautiful scenery.

It was a cool hike on the way down but the sun was out and shining by the time we got there.  Jake is protecting himself from sunburn.
We headed back to our campsite to get ready for our day seeing the local glaciers.
