Saturday was a long travel day. We started at the Wellington Airport. As Amanda said, no TSA security, great decorations (Gandalf on an eagle, Smaug the dragon, and trolls), and friendly people. We flew to Christchurch where we connected with Jonathan, who flew in from LAX for the wedding. From there we–Jon, Manda, Phillip, Carol, me–drove 8 hours to Fox Glacier, stopping in Sheffield for meat pies and Hokey Pokey ice cream (vanilla with honey comb–a NZ favorite), and some sightseeing at Arthurs Pass. Long, but enjoyable day with family in Clifford, the big red van.
