Milford Sound

Milford Sound has an average rainfall of 8metres per annum so we were very lucky on the day that we went that we had cloudless skies and sunshine. We also had a pod of about 12 dolphins in the wake of our boat.

A great place to visit.

New Zealand- so much to see

This is a Moeraki boulder formed 60 million years ago. Same way as an oyster forms a pearl. They are still growing

This is Mount Cook, the highest mountain on the South island.It is usually shrouded in cloud but we had a great day to see it. Good weather followed us for our whole 2 weeks.

DH and I enjoying the scenery.

Trip to New Zealand

We are starting with a 7 day bus tripof the south island.. We landed in Christchurch but because of the earthquake their was a lack of accomodation close by so this is where we were taken, about an hours drive, what a view!!!

The first day we drove to lake Tekapo, the water is this colour because of the mica which is washed from the glaciers.
This country is beautiful and if you have the chance to travel there do so as you will not be disappointed.
