Wednesday 25 November

Today was the complete opposite to yesterday. We visited my Gran in the morning, then spent the rest of the day sitting in the car, driving from Dunedin to Hollyford Valley, near Milford Sound.

The most exciting part of our journey was a wild deer jumping out in front of our car as we were driving down an unsealed road to our accommodation for the night, Gunn's Camp.

The huts were once used by workers in the area. The huts are very basic, containing just a coal/wood-fired stove, a table and chairs, and a bed. But we could hear the nearby river rushing by as we lay in bed. Kind of like rain on the roof but without the pitter-patter sound.
