MOSTLY FISHING (unsuccessfully!!)

This was a BIG fish (well that's my story). Went to lift it out of the water and my line broke.
First fish! I think I might have been happier if the fish had been bigger.

Our wake up view from the "Truck" on our way over from Tekapo to Oamaru.

The Tasman Glacier Lake. To get an idea of perspective our two 15 man boats are in the bottom left of picture. The icebergs in the picture are nowhere near the biggest.

The above two pictures are of two of the bigger icebergs. This is as close as we could get to them as they topple over from time to time as they melt which can of course be dangerous if you are too close.

300 year old piece of ice.

From the white to the blue hues.
