I'm so glad that I did the drive down to Milford Sound was stunning.
I had been warned that as soon as you hit the ground at Milford you are under attack but swarms of sand flies, but I had come prepared with my mixture of dettol and baby oil and it works, you smell a bit but who cares.
We boarded the boat and started on our journey into the Milford Sound. I stayed on the viewing deck in the hope that I would see some penguins, but with no luck just dolphin's and seals-boo sucks.
Milford sound is very beautiful and as you can see from the photos very atmospheric when the clouds come down, it's almost like being in a horror movie.
I was slightly disappointed by the amount of traffic, there were planes, helicopters and lots of boats. At times the noise was overpowering.
I was getting slightly worried that the doubtful sound would be the same.
We returned back to the dock and got on our bus and headed back to Te Anua,
Esther was driving in the next day and rumor had it so was Scott, but I wasn't going to hold my breath. That man is a law unto himself, I sometimes wonders if he is part of the human race at all. He gets sidetracked so easily. We all know that he doesn't do it deliberately and you just can't stay mad at him, which in it's self annoys the hell out of me.
He reminds me of a dandelion seed head, those fluffy white things. Every time it lands and you try and catch it, it fly's off again, it has no direction and no cares in the world, just to flit across the world on the next breeze. It's looks so lovely and make you smile but you just can't pin it down-that's Scott.
I went to bed in the hope that the wind would be in the right direction tomorrow and that I would get to see Scott again.
I wasn't being picked up until 10.45am so at least I got a bit of a lay in.
