Friday 18 November, St Moritz Hotel Queenstown
It’s over. We’re back in Queenstown, hubby is here, and my hands are covered in sandfly bites from yesterday at Sandfly Point. And, before you ask, I know how lethal these little buggers can be, so had lathered all exposed parts with repellent. Sadly, I forgot to redo my hands after washing them when I used the bathroom.
Today opened with sunshine and the same fabulous view as last night. A cruise ship was in and looked tiny against the peaks.
We boarded a boat for a 90min cruise of Milford Sound – which isn’t actually a sound, but rather a fjord, on account of it being ice-carved. Technicalities over the name waved aside, this is a truly magnificent place. This was my 3rd (or was it 4th time?) on the Sound, and it felt as though I was seeing it for the first.
Following the cruise was the 4 hour bus trip back to Queenstown – broken by a stop at Te Anau and the sound of everyone’s cellphones springing into action as we once again connected with the outside world.
Anyways, enough of my words, settle back and I’ll show you some pics of Milford Sound. It is indeed a wondrous view…
