Rain plays spoilsport :(
18.03.2010 - 18.03.2010
It was so difficult to get up on the 18th after St. Patrick's party the previous night. But we dragged ourselves out of bed to get onto the Milford Explorer. There were a few more people who had planned the same trip with us. Many were still hung over and a few were sleeping standing up.
We got onto the bus and noticed big black clouds in the horizon and the worst came true. It started raining really heavily after a while.
We stopped for breakfast and had venison pies. Yummy. They were hot and spicy and full of venison stew. There were a few stops along the way and the weather was getting gloomier and gloomier.
After a 4 Hr drive, we reached Milford. It was a really tiny place. We got onto the boat - The pride of Milford and sat down for lunch. It was a buffet but I wasn't really hungry so I just ate a bit. It was raining heavily outside. We still ventured onto the top of the boat for a few photographs but we could hardly see anything.
This was supposed to be the most amazing place in NZ and we couldn't see a thing. Such a disaster. As Lauren said, it was like going to visit the Pyramids in Egypt and then getting stuck in a sand storm.
We started back and then weather started clearing up. Argh. It was just bad timing I guess. After we got back, I packed up my stuff and crashed into bed. Another long journey tomorrow.
