We had a beautiful day for this...

We had a beautiful day for this tour, so it was warm enough to stay on deck most of the time. Take your raincoat for the close-up of the last waterfall We were lucky enough to see a penguin, and fur seals. You can really see where the glaciers cut the rock face. Gorgeous views - if you want to see more impressive waterfalls, go on a rainy day.
Wie immer bei den Kiwis perfekt organisiert, wenn auch die touristische Massenabfertigung gelegentlich nerven kann. Den Milford Sound muss man aber gesehen haben, auch die Busfahrt dorthin ist schon grossartig !
