and now to the south

The weather was fantastic on our SILDI (screw it, let's do it!) trip to the South Island except for the two days that we took cruises at Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound and then traveled up the West Coast. The rain was a double-edged sword as, with it, the photos aren't very good and without it, the falls wouldn't have been so full.

The follow shots are some that Hubby took while we were out on the Sounds. 

These shots are part of the scenery as we traveled up the coast.

In the top left shot below you can see some equipment above the bushes. Those are with the official people watching the water for danger of mud slides or washing away the road at that particular area.

What incredible scenery, made even more moody with the rain.

Oh I love these pics, this is my part of the world - or was when I was growing up. I still love it.

Despite the bad weather, you got some spectacular shots. Milford Sound is the only one I have been to, but that was over 10 years ago. After looking at your shots, I want to head back south.
