Thanks to Gordon and Lindy for booking me into some really great looking places. My favorite ones so far are St. Arnaud’s Alpine Lodge and the Bealey Hotel at Arthur’s Pass. Hopefully I’ll get back to the Bealey Hotel in time before that cute hungry Kea rips into my food box again. We had only just finished taping up this box when this little guy decided to undo our good work. We really wanted to let this Kea show us what it was truly capable of but we both knew that if we left him alone for another minute it would cost us hours. These birds are definitely the most entertaining to watch. I didn’t mind this hungry Kea shredding my food box but hopefully my imported cuben fiber tent won’t suffer the same consequences.
