New Zealand, South Island, Milford Sound area...   2018

Photos by Barbara Dahn, unless otherwise acknowledged.

 

February. Barbara and I had intended to do some walking around the southwest of the South Island, for example to Lake Marian.  However the weather was unusually wet...

 

 

Of course there was no shortage of interesting scenery on the way... below, a wheat crop

Keas seem to enjoy being the centre of attention...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are LOTS of beautiful lakes.... makes you wish you had a jet-ski!  (only joking!)
