Chocolate Covered Decadence
And guess who was covered - it was me and NO - there are no photos.
Today we went to Hamner Springs which is a thermal spring resort a few hours out of Christchurch. We spent two hours moving from pools ranging from 28-40 degrees and came out very prune-like but soooo relaxed. The sun was out and the snow sparkled off the nearby mountains. Just perfect!
After lunch I went to the Spa and had their Cocoa Relaxing Massage. 'This rich, indulgent treatment leaves you with a feeling of well being. Enjoy a honey and sugar scrub, followed by a cocoa butter massage before the hot cocoa wrap – bliss! Its perfume and chocolate texture awaken the senses and leaves your skin hydrated and soft.'
It was incredible and totally decadent. I still feel terrific after the two hour drive home and smell wonderful.
Even the drive was great as we have found a radio station that only plays songs from the 60s and 70s so have been singing all the way home and the views were magnificent.
