Milford Sound

A steady rain started while in Te Anau and continued through the night. We camped at a DOC site, the closest one we could find to the terminal at Milford Sound where we would catch our 9am cruise. It was very cold that night and we had to use two blankets. The beauty was the snow that precipitated on the mountain peaks that night.

The weather cleared enough so the 2 hour cruise was mixed with periods of rain helping create the numerous waterfalls that entertained us.

Captain Dennis graciously welcomed us in the pilot house.
