Heading for Milford Sound
We were up early today. Had to make sure our flight was able to go as planned. Yes, weather permitted! We were picked up from our unit and taken to the airport. It was a 14 seater plane and including the pilot there was 8 of us and that meant we all had a window seat. Wow what scenery! When we arrived at Milford we were given the choice of going the rest of the way on the free bus or taking the walking track through the rain forest foliage. We all walked. It wasn't far. We boarded the Milford Adventurer but I think there was only about 12 passengers. We were there early because of flying in. The busloads of tourists would be there a bit later. It was a beautiful one and a half hour cruise. I understand why the cruiseships cruise in and out of this fjord as part of its itinery. At the end of the cruise we had to go back to the plane on the bus because of time restrictions. Another fantastic flight back to Queenstown.
