Just back from a lovely couple of nights down in the South Westland village of Franz Josef, the township for the Franz Josef glacier.
Lots of fresh snow on the mountains. We had beautiful crisp clear winter days for exploring (more to come).
Visiting Franz Josef means a visit with our friends Bernie and Gerard from Holly Homestead – the boys “D-God parents” and this means being rather spoilt.
The boys enjoyed catching up with their friend Benson and we enjoyed our time with Bernie and Gerard and Kaz from Westwood Lodge.
Blessed with wonderful sunsets we couldn’t resist a drive to Lake Mapourika for reflection photos as the sun went down behind the mountains.
The evenings were just as beautiful as the days, giving us stunning starry skies above our accommodation at Holly Homestead. Another lovely visit to Franz Josef.
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. They enjoy getting out and about and exploring this wonderful region – West Coast of the Southern Alps.
