Almost time... think about heading home. It's been an awesome trip, and we only have a couple of days to go. We drove to Te Anua the day before yesterday, and it was a fairly easy drive, with some nice scenery on the way. Its funny how the bar gets higher - it's really a lovely drive, but the scenery when we drove out to Glenorchy at the end of the lake the day before was so amazing, everything else looks ho-hum by comparison. :)
Yesterday we wen to Milford Sound. It was very cloudy in the morning, but fined up to be quite a nice day. It was very disappointing, as we were on a dive trip for DH, and he discovered once geared up and in the water that he was not fully recovered and couldn't dove after all. We still had a great day, but it's pretty rough to be that close and miss out - especially when he had to watch everyone else diving. :( Unfortunately the dive company couldn't offer any type of refund at all, so it made for an expensive cruise. Hopefully I can work something out with travel insurance when we get home.
We saw the funniest thing at the spot above in the last photo - tiny little fish in the rock pool under the waterfall, that climb the cliff face. I didn't believe it at first, but they are seriously wiggling their way up the sheer rock face. Most bizarre thing I have ever seen. No pics though - didn't want to get the camera wet, so you will just have to take my word for it!

Thanks guys - it's been a bit hard to choose images to include from the thumbnails during upload, so I'll be adding more favourites over the next few weeks as I get a good look at them at home.
