What a treat Milford was .... we had very un-Milford-like weather (i.e. no rain), and it was still 'warm'. It was hard work (my arms are still sore), but lots of fun. We had to deal with wakes from the tourist boats, which I loved - got very wet - glad my camera was in the 'dry bag.' We saw a fiordland crested penguin, which was trying to be miserable and moult in privacy. The we paddled across the sound into whitecaps generated by the adiabatic (??) winds that come onshore (up-sound) in the afternoon - that was really hard work. The next part was a real blast - we used a tent fly as a sail, and with three kayaks held together, we 'sailed' (quite fast at times) all the way back to the Arthur River (near where the Milford Track ends). I didn't take any pictures at all, because I didn't want my camera to get damaged (salt water), which means I just enjoyed everything.
