We are headed North today. However, it sound like further travel restrictions are coming. We may still have trouble getting home.
We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant before checking out and loading up the car. The three hour drive to Mount Cook was beautiful. We arrived at The Hermitage Hotel around 3:30 and had some time to relax before going to dinner. The view from our hotel room is spectacular.
We ate an early dinner at The Old Mountaineers Café Bar & Restaurant in Mount Cook Village. Since it is Friday we all had the Salmon. Shari and I had the Salmon salad and Albert had the Salmon pizza. It was all delicious and we had a spectacular view of the mountains.
After dinner I went by the front desk and asked if we could extend our stay another day. They were happy to accommodate us. We went back to the room for the evening and planned our hikes for tomorrow. We also got in a few games of Uno before bed time.
