Early start! We left for Milford Sound at 6:30am. We stopped halfway there to book our Stewart Island ferry tickets and have breakfast. I had a yummy cappuccino and eggs on toast, before we continued on to Milford Sound. We stopped twice more for some quick hikes and to take pictures. Milford is gorgeous, the landscape is incredible. I’m sad to admit that New Zealand is more gorgeous than Oregon. ;) The fjords and mountains and snow was amazing! I staked out a spot on the top deck of the boat and didn’t move. About halfway through, the Japanese tourists came up to the top deck (they all had tickets that included lunch), but alas, I had the spot they all wanted. It was such a gorgeous day.
