Thursday 26 November

This morning we left camp and drove the rest of the way into Milford Sound.

My mum and dad met here when they were working at the Milford Sound Hotel (which no longer exists) and I spent the first six months of my life here.

Today we took a cruise on the sound with Mitre Peak Cruises

It was beautiful. We saw waterfalls, penguins and seals. The weather was pretty fine but it was windy and after being out on the top of the boat for two hours my fingers were numb!

After the cruise we drove from Milford to Queenstown (stopped in Te Anau on the way to have a coffee and download photos from my camera onto a disc).

It was still sunny when we arrived in Queenstown so after putting our things in our hostel room we headed out for a drink. Found a place nearby to catch the last of the sun while having a glass of wine, and planned our activities for the next day.
