A quick postcard to say hello. I suspect this might be the last one as internet’s getting harder and harder to come by conventiently. I’m sitting in a rained-out Milford Sound after a fantastic evening on a boat. Can’t even tell you how amazing this place is. You know, tourists come and go by the boatload to places like this, but the natural beauty, especially here where they protect it fiercely, is undiminished. I’m always a little excited when I show up in places like this and the weather looks inclement. My way of knowing it’s time to get the rainjacket out, pull the cameras from the bag and grab a couple extra lens cloths. Saw dolphins and seals this evening as the wind and waves pushed our boat around. Fantastic. Blackflies (Sand flies to the Kiwis, I think?) are out of control, but a good wind makes them someone else’s problem.)
Tomorrow a little more of Fiordland, then further south as we push our way around this lovely island. Hope y’all are having a great weekend. Can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. Summer here now and winter – even a rainy Vancouver one – seems so far away.
