So after going to bed with clouds closing in round the mountains it was fantastic to wake up to this view in the morning ... perfect!
This is photo was taken from in front of our cottage .... simply stunning!
This is a shot of Emma and I standing in front of one of the many waterfalls in the valley.
But not to worry as the rest of the day was spent travelling up to Greymouth where we were staying that night.
Another tour that night ... hubby's choice ... yes the Monteiths Brewery! The tour was ok, the factory is pretty small now with being bought by one of the bigger breweries. The tour included pouring our own lager afterwards ... I tried an Apricot wheat beer ... very yummy. You also got 3 vouchers to sample some more product over the bar and I found my new summer drink Monteiths Pear Cider - so easy to drink ... almost too easy! They also do restaurant meals and we had tea there after our tour ... yummy whitebait patties ... and fantastic way to finish off the day.
Stay tuned for Day 4 ...
