Kayaking Milford Sound, Jan 2013

After our mission up Gertrude Saddle in the morning we drove to Milford Sound and went for a cruise around the sound on a boat (Father’s idea…). There was some cunning navigating from the skipper so that we could take some nice rainbow photos and general cruising around. The next day we went kayaking on the sound, which was good, except the weather was not so nice and we ended up a little chilly. We had the chance to kayak up close to Stirling Falls which was grand. After the kayaking we warmed up with a hot chocolate and drove to the Divide where we started our tramp into Lake Howden Hut.
