Long day ...Fox Glacier

We did a very long day today (for us) from Haast to Fox Glacier in a 125 k single swoop. The wind was kind and did not blow in our faces all day long as it has been. We had planned to stop at Jacobs River but we arrived there at 2pm and decided to do that last 45k to Fox.
Tomorrow we are going to do the final 25k to Franz Josef and look at the Glacier. This will help us regain the lost day from the Hawea flats - Makarora day
We met 4 other cycle touring couples in the holiday park here , 1 set on the road and a french couple in the campsite at haast to say its a popular destination for tourers !
