Cruising Fjordland And Crossing The Tasman Sea

Monday January 31st
Today we sailed past Fjordland National Park which is in the South West corner of South Island New Zealand. It has many deep Fiords which were carved by glaciers. We passed through Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound and then entered Milford Sound. Wow….what an exciting visual experience. Took loads of photos… Click Here To View.
Have noticed a real drop in temperature today as we are now the furthest south we can be without visiting Antarctica.
Pinch, Punch First Of The Month…

Clocks back another tonight…all this extra sleep…
