Day 12 – Mount Cook

After our stay at the Larnach Castle we headed toward Mount Cook. On the way, we stopped at a couple of tourist attractions. One was the Blue Penguin Village. Believe it or not, there is a real penguin colony here in New Zealand. The photo gallery shows the lone penguin that we saw. Don’t know where the others were but he stood stoically for all to take pictures. We joked that he must have got the short straw and been relegated to photo duty for the day. Bob saw the Elephant Rocks attraction during his preparation for the trip and he really wanted to see them. We found them in an empty field on private property. Not much to see but he was happy.

The view of Mount Cook was amazing. Look in the photos section. We each had our own chalet. The view from the restaurant’s main dining room was great. The dinner buffet was special too.

We were all sad to know that tomorrow will be our last ride together.
