We decided to book the flight and cruise to Milford Sound as we would not have time to drive there and did not want to do a bus tour there. We had to wait for 7 am to see if our 8am trip would be going. Bugga! the weather was not good, no flight this morning but the afternoon came good.

The taxi picked us up at our appartment and took us to the airport. It is the same company and plane that Andrew flew with/on the first time we went there. The weather was sort of good but we were told to expect a bit of a bumpy ride. We arrived safely and hopped on the shuttle bus to the cruise terminal. It wasn't too long before we boarded the boat. We sat inside for the first part of the cruise but then I convinced May that we should go outside. We got some great pics of the seals and the scenery but then we were heading towards a waterfall.

Last time Andrew and I went, they headed for the waterfall and we got a bit of spray so I didn't worry today. Wronggggggg!!! They went straight into the waterfsll today and we got drenched! Wet and cold but still laughing.  After the cruise we walked back to the plane and then off on another bumpy ride in wet pants!

Again, the taxi took us back to the appartment.
