Milford Sound

(more pictures)

We took a helicopter from Queenstown to Milford Sound and really lucked out with the weather - it was beautiful, but the day before it had rained a record 300mm.
The ride over was amazing (and looking down at the road, we were very glad we hadn't gone for the 5 hour bus ride).
We took a cruise boat out on the Sound - saw seals, a couple of dolphins amd lots of gorgeous scenery.
And lots of waterfalls (after all that rain!)
Pretty crowded with tourists - there were planes coming in all the time.
On the ride back, the pilot stopped on the top of a mountain so we could take pictures.
And we got a nice view of Queenstown from above on the way back.
