New Zealand Adventures – Milford Sound

10 Feb

After leaving Wanaka & the wedding party, we headed south to Milford Sound. The drive from Wanaka to Milford Sound was quite stunning with fields, mountains, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. While in Milford Sound, we took a Discovery Cruise through the fjordlands. (Milford Sound resembles the fjords in Scandinavia with the mountains dropping into the sea.) Part of the cruise took us to the Underwater Discovery Center. It was a spectacular day, especially so since I spent my birthday with most of my family.

While it was cloudy and a bit foggy and rain sprinkles, last month they had 26 days of rain, so they said we were there with good weather.

We also saw a rather colorful van at the Milford Sound Lodge where we were staying. None of us had seen a treehouse camper before.

Today, we left Milford Sound and are now in Queenstown. We start the homeward journey tomorrow morning.
