Enjoying the view from the Windsor B & B Hotel.

Christchurch is a beautiful little town to stay in. After getting all our cold-weather gear earlier today (sorry, I didn’t even think to take pictures of all the stuff this year), we spent the afternoon relaxing, taking in the beautiful spring air of New Zealand. I sat down to write my blog (there’s more coming later), finish up a paper review that’s due while I’m on the ice, and catch up on Facebook and email.

Last night Bill, Bart and I had a wonderful dinner at a Thai restaurant, Rachel decided to hit the sack. This morning I went out for a run along the little River Avon that flows past the botanical gardens and through town here. It’s really too quaint.

We’re due at the Antarctic Center at 6 am tomorrow morning to check in for the flight. If the weather in McMurdo cooperates, we’ll be down there after a relatively short 5 hour flight. If not, we may “boomerang” and have to spend another night or two in beautiful Christchurch…
