Let's talk about fiords

First off, to the more observant of you, yes there is a gray speck on my camera lens. We can't get it off. Sometimes we're able to place it over some rocks or trees, but it's always there. About half way through this post is where we put the camera away and switched to my phone camera... which as it turns out takes much nicer photos and fits in my …

A Glorious Day at Doubtful Sound

A travel blog entry by wbeardsl


We had been wondering about having come all this way to see Milford Sound only to find that we could not get there. It seemed like a waste but I had a feeling that God knew that there was something better in store. And there was.

The clouds darkened, the wind started to …

    You just can't beat coming home to your own cottage after a long day hiking in the hills. Sitting on your private deck, sipping wine while you dinner sizzles on the grill. Did I mention the awesome shower?? Truly a pleasureable way to spend the week and the hosts were as welcoming as could be!
