It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on here – mainly owing to not having time from a combination of family and work.
As noted in the previous post, we were meant to be driving to Milford Sound and staying in Milford lodge on this day of the trip, but owing to poor weather and risks of landslide the road from Te Anau to Milford Sound remained closed. In order to get a potential head start (we had heard that the weather was improving and the road was likely to reopen the following day) we decided to book a night’s accommodation in Te Anau. Te Anau is only a couple of hours drive from Queenstown, and we’d booked an en suite unit in the Te Anau Kiwi Holiday Park, which was really comfortable. It needed to be, as it piled it down with rain all afternoon and evening, and we didn’t really feel much like going out. We did venture as far as the “Fat Duck” for some food which was excellent.
No photos of the day, but plenty to follow in the next installment, when we finally get to Milford Sound, which in summary would be delightful were it not for all the tourists!!
