l-in-a-coal-shovel-1The Adventurers knew today would be a long drive – 6 hours according to Google maps -but it was over 8 hours and they pulled into the very nice bed and breakfast near the town of Franz Joseph two tuckered individuals.

Luckily their host Jonathan at Ribbonwood Retreat was extremely welcoming, quickly presenting them with a couple of glasses of wine and a good pub/restaurant recommendation in town called Alice May.

They did only one leg stretcher along the way, when they stopped in Greymouth for lunch. Along the river is a historical look back on when coal ruled the area. Two big cranes remain and have become beloved icons of the city. L got cozy with some coal shovels.

Looks like another long day tomorrow…
