New Zealand: Milford Sound

One of our top to do's in the South Island was to take a cruise the famous Milford Sound.  We did one better and joined one of the two overnight cruises through the sound.  This allowed us more time to take in the magnificent natural wonder but also we weren't surrounded by other boats.  It was a nice time, but reminded us that sometime we forget that we are traveling with a toddler and this could have been way more relaxing if we weren't chasing Adalyn around the boat making sure she didn't fall overboard.  We did take full advantage of the quite decks after bedtime and enjoyed the beautiful southern hemisphere stars.  Here are a few pictures from our time in Milford Sound.

The drive to Milford Sound is stunning.  Around every turn there was beautiful scenery to shoot. These are just a few of our favorites.

Adi loved watching the dolphins chase our boat.  A highlight for her

Not sure it gets much cuter than that!

After the boat trip, we did a short hike to a gorgeous waterfall.  We all loved it, especially Adi who loves her backpack!  A fun few days in NZ!

Stay tuned...more to come on our New Zealand trip!
