ME IN FRONT OF THE SHIP THAT TOOK US THROUGH THE SOUND.
HI EVERYONE HOPE YOUR ALL GOOD

CHEERS FOR YOUR COMMENTS

WELL I HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED BACK IN TE ANAU AGAIN!!! THIS TIME IM NOT WORKING JUST ENJOYING THIS AMAZING PLACE AND WALKING LOADS. BEN HAS ALSO NEVER BEEN HEAR SO ITS A CHANCE TO SO HIM MY LITTLE CORNER OF NEW ZEALAND.

WE DECIDED TO KICK OFF OUR VISIT TO TE ANAU WITH A OVERNIGHT TRIP TO MILFORD SOUND(MAINLY AS IT WAS AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE) I HAVE DONE THIS TRIP BEFORE BUT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. THE TRIP BEGINS WITH ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING DRIVES IN THE WORLD TRAVELING ABOUT 2 HOURS THROUGH MOUNTAINS AND RUGGED COUNTRY EVENTUALLY GETTING TO MILFORD SOUND, WHICH IS ACTUALLY A FIORD AND NOT A SOUND BY THE WAY( IF YOU WANT TO KNOW DROP ME A LINE) SILLY KIWIS NAMED IT WRONG AND NEVER CHANGED IT.ANYWAY THE DRIVE WAS STUNNING AND MILFORD WAS EVEN BETTER. WE STAYED ON BOARD A SHIP CALLED THE WANDERER WHICH TOOK US THROUGH THE FIORD AND EVENTUALLY PARKING UP FOR THE EVENING IN A LITTLE COVE WHERE WE ENJOYED SEA KAYAKING BEFORE DINNER. WAS A GREAT DINNER AS WELL ENDLESS HELPINGS OF BEEF GRAVY

AND LOTS OF VEGGIES. BEST MEAL IVE HAD FOR A WHILE.THE MORNING BEGAN REALLY EARLY WITH A COOKED BREAKFAST AND THEN ANOTHER SAIL AROUND THE FIORD WITH GLIMPSES OF DOLPHINS AND SEALS.


THE OTHER DAY DID A DAY WALK UP GERTRUDE SADDLE. AS A MATTER OF INTEREST A SADDLE IS THE SPACE BETWEEN TWO MOUNTAINS SORT OF A LINK. ANYWAY IT WAS A GREAT WALK AND GREAT VIEWS DOWN INTO MILFORD. TAKE A LOOK AT PICS.

Breathtaking scenery
Looks fantastic there, can see why many films use NZ for their locations.
