We have come to Mount Cook for a few days break and the weather couldn't be worse. Last night I hardly slept it was a thunder and lightning storm to beat all those I have already been in. We have been hiking today up into the mountains and the kids eventually enjoyed the experience. The day started great but has ended up pretty dismal and grey, still cannot see Mount Cook the highest mountain in New Zealand. But we are all enjoying the experience. I have even had time to stitch Down in the garden. The 3rd last block to go.
