We spent yesterday afternoon in Milford Sound. It’s actually a misnomer to call it a sound. Technically, it is a fjord and it’s a beauty. Milford Sound is New Zealand’s most visited attraction and was dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World by Rudyard Kipling. It is a fjord because it was formed by glacial action.
The day was overcast, rainy, and foggy. Nonetheless, the decks of the ship were filled with people eager to see this beautiful place even if the day was less than beautiful. If you google Milford Sound, you will spectacular photos of this masterpiece of nature. Our photographs are lovely in a different sort of way. I think the weather gave the sound a brooding, mysterious look. And, in the end, it was better to see Milford Sound on a rainy day than to have never seen it at all!
