This morning everything had changed.
We could smile again.

The choppers started about 7:15 a.m., obviously making up for
all the lost time from the day before.

Go back to the above photo and check out the people climbing
the face to get some idea of the size of the glacier.

Close up, the glacier looks very inhospitable.

One of our more auspicious Happy Hours: it was Peter's birthday.
Bryan and Rinny cooked up some delicious whitebait fritters, which we
polished off with a beer, or two.   Then we took an easy stroll over to
the pub for a roast dinner to help Peter celebrate.
