Woken up at 6.00 to start homeward journey, weather changed and were able to see mountains some sun and blue sky, waterfalls and fauna. Set sails and went to a bay which was beautiful when we got to the end we stood still and turned the engines off. Complete silence apart from the sound of nature, waterfalls and bird calls, marvellous experience. We disembarked at 10.00 caught a bus back to Manapouri Lake and then the ferry to Manapouri. Thousands of sand flies tried to eat us if we stood still thank heavens for insect repellent. 
At 12.30 we loaded up the car driving on minor roads to join highway 99 on to Invercagill, very scenic but windy. Booked into our Top Ten chalet which looked brand new and luxurious. We unpacked, rested then went to explore Queens Park full of interesting plants, farm animals and birds. We went to Little Indian restaurant where the meal was great, later purchased some provisions and returned to chalet to pack for next day.
